Kent Haruf Author Event Cancelled | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Kent Haruf Author Event Cancelled


The author event at The King's English Bookshop with Kent Haruf, originally scheduled for tomorrow (Wednesday, March 20), has been cancelled. ---

According to Jenny Lyons, marketing manager for King's English, Haruf had to withdraw from the planned event -- promoted in the Essentials section of the current City Weekly -- due to health reasons. No re-scheduling of the event is currently planned.

Haruf's terrific new novel Benediction is still available, however. Visit here for our review, again noting the cancellation of the accompanying event.
