King's English Update

Hey, we're taking the long weekend off! We'll be back on Monday, July 6th, bright and early. Take care, find some shade, be kind, and READ!


Karin Anderson | Before Us Like a Land of Dreams

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Karin Anderson will join us to read from and sign her new novel, Before Us Like a Land of Dreams

This book follows a disheartened Utah mother traveling an evocative route through the sites of her arid Western ancestry. As her narration fades, the dead speak their stories: a ragged Mormon boy; a hoarder’s queer son; descendants of British squatters. They give no answers, but conjure vivid moments set in iconic—and diminishing—American places.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Before Us Like a Land of Dreams from The King's English.
