Authors Laura Bell and Mark Spragg
Authors Laura Bell and Mark Spragg

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Wyoming writers Mark Spragg and Laura Bell are both inspired by the West - though they are writing from different perspectives. Spragg is a novelist. His books include "An Unfinished Life" and his latest "Bone Fire." Bell has just published a memoir called "Claiming Ground." They're on tour together, talking about the influence of the land on their characters and stories. Spragg and Bell are coming to Utah this weekend, and Thursday, they'll join us.

  • Friday, March 19th at 7:00 p.m., the King's English Bookshop and the Stegner Centerwill host Mark Spragg and Laura Bell at the Rowland Hall Upper School (843 Lincoln St, Salt Lake City). Their reading will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. For more information, call the store at 801-484-9100 or click here
