Author Ron Carlson

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Utah native Ron Carlson's new book is the story of three men on a plateau in Idaho who are building a giant ramp for a TV motorcycle stunt. They're your stereotypical, taciturn men of the West, but throughout the story they each reveal themselves in cautious yet profound ways. It's Carlson's first novel in 30 years, and it's been called "bluntly beautiful and unnerving." Ron Carlson is in Logan this week, and joins Doug from the campus of Utah State University.

    Author Ron Carlson will visit Logan as part of the Utah State University Department of English Speaker Series.
  • On Wednesday, September 19, at 7:00 pm he will read from his work in the Utah State University Haight Alumni Center.
  • Ron Carlson will conduct a master class at 4:00 pm Thursday, September 20 in the USU Family Life Building Caine Room (212).
