To celebrate Banned Books Week and the start of National Book Month, author Dorothee Kocks will read from, discuss and sign her historical novel, The Glass Harmonica.

The novel features a nineteenth century bookseller who sold illicit books, and his wife, who plays Benjamin Franklin's glass harmonica, a controversial instrument that caused "even ladies of more mature age" to experience "pangs of blessed rapture."

Presented in partnership with the Utah Humanities Book Festival.
