The 1-5-B, Episode 5: READ LOCAL with Larry Menlove and Jennifer Sinor

On Thursday, June 29, Utah writers Larry Menlove and Jennifer Sinor came to Salt Lake City’s Finch Lane Gallery as part of READ LOCAL, a collaboration between Salt Lake City Arts Council and 15 Bytes, with financial support from Utah Humanities, in which we pair emerging local writers with established writers for a reading and discussion of their work.

Menlove read his essay “Of the Coming River,” which won first place in the Utah Division of Arts and Museums 2016 Original Writing Contest (Creative Nonfiction Essay). Sinor read two excerpts from recently published books, her memoir Ordinary Trauma and Letters Like the Day: On Reading Georgia O’Keeffe.

The series is introduced and moderated by 15 Bytes literary editor David G. Pace. A discussion involving both the authors and the audience follows the readings.
