Jim Harrison

By Scott Carrier

Salt Lake City, UT – Literary legend Jim Harrison has been capturing beauty and a zest for life with his poems, novels and essays for more than 40 years. He's written about the spiritual pleasures of the natural world and the physical pleasures of the body in works like Saving Daylight, Legends of the Fall, and The Raw and the Cooked. Jim Harrison has recently published his ninth novel Returning to Earth, and in it looks from the good life to the good death. He is in Utah, and Thursday on RadioWest we'll air a conversation between Harrison and independent radio producer Scott Carrier.

Thursday, March 8th at 7:00 p.m., Jim Harrison will read from his latest work Returning to Earth at the University of Utah Law School Auditorium (332 South 1400 East, Salt Lake City). This free event is sponsored by the King's English Bookshop, and for more information you can call them at 484-9100 or visit them on-line
