Sam Weller's moving to Trolley Square
SALT LAKE CITY -- Sam Weller's Bookstore, located along downtown Salt Lake City's Main Street for 50 years, has finally announced its new location -- in Trolley Square, also in Salt Lake City.
The store, while continuing to carry on business, has been looking for a new spot since 2009.
Catherine and Tony Weller will lease a 10,000-square-foot space, formerly movie theaters, at the southern edge of Trolley Square, according to a press release.
They expect to open there this fall.
Neuroscientist David Eagleman will talk about his playful new nonfiction book "Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain" (Pantheon) at 7 p.m. Monday at the Salt Lake City Library auditorium, 210 E. 400 South. Eagleman directs the Laboratory for Perception and Action, as well as the Initiative on Neuroscience and Law, at the Baylor College of Medicine. He is also the author of "Sum: Forty Tales From the Afterlives," originally published by Pantheon in 2009.
