Salt Lake City, Utah – When the journalist Philip Connors got the chance to pack up his desk in New York and head for a fire tower in New Mexico, it didn't take much to convince him. In fact, Connors says he fell in love at first sight. He's now spent nine summers keeping watch over one of the most fire-prone landscapes in the country. He's also been filling notebooks with his reflections on solitude, patience and our place in the wild. Thursday, he joins us to talk about his debut book, Fire Season.

This Saturday, April 9th at 6:00 p.m., Philip Connors will be at Sam Weller's Bookstore for a free reading and book signing. For more information, click here or call the store at 801-328-2586.
