Books and Bridges is a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
Writ & Vision is a meeting place of art and artifacts, books and ideas, curating and collecting, history and culture, research and community, discussion and education.
This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Writ & Vision, and Utah Humanities.
