Books & Beats: July 16, 2016
The author Kent Haruf died in 2014. All of his novels take place in the fictional town of Holt, Colorado. On Books & Beats this week, Betsy Burton looks back at one of his greatest books—Plainsong (Vintage). She says it’s “a plainly told tale that packs such punch with its simple syntax and laconic dialogue that it will shimmer in your memory forever.”
Then Austen Diamond’s looking forward to this summer’s Twilight Concert Series in Salt Lake City’s downtown Pioneer Park.
