New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson reads from and signs his first young adult book "The Rithmatist" (Tor Teen, $17.99), 7 p.m. Monday at the Provo Library, 550 N. University Ave. The Utah author is best known for his Mistborn series and his work in finishing Robert Jordan's epic fantasy series The Wheel of Time. The event is free, but tickets are required.
Author events this week at The King's English Bookshop include:
* Utah author Elana Johnson reads from and signs "Abandon" (Simon Pulse, $17.99), the conclusion to her Possession trilogy for young adults, at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
* Bob Keiter reads from and discusses "To Conserve Unimpaired" (Island Press, $35) at 6 p.m. Thursday. Keiter's book argues that the goal of the national parks system "to conserve unimpaired" is not as straightforward as it seems. Keiter is a Wallace Stegner Center professor of law and a founding director of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment at the University of Utah.
These are free events at the bookshop, 1511 S. 1500 East, Salt Lake City.
