Salt Lake City, UT – Fuel prices may have you yearning for the days of good old family road trips: the license plate game, back-seat territorial wars and songs to pass the time. Historian Susan Sessions Rugh says that vacations were a time for strengthening family bonds. But her new book Are We There Yet? goes beyond nostalgia. Tuesday on RadioWest, Rugh joins Doug to talk about the changing patterns of family life, prosperity and the reasons this innately American ritual declined.

    Next Tuesday, July 8th, Susan Sessions Rugh will will be at the Barnes and Noble in Sugarhouse to sign her book. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. For more information, call the store at (801) 463-2610.
  • Next month, August 6th, Rugh will be at the King's English Bookshop. For more information, click here or call (801) 484-9100
