The Annual Friends of the Library Luncheon Featuring Jane Perkins

Oct 10, 2017, 11:00 am

Join Park City Friends of the Library at their annual luncheon. This year’s guest author is High West Distillery co-founder Jane Perkins, who will discuss her new book The Golden Elixir of the West: Whiskey and the Shaping of America. Tickets are $36 in advance and can be purchased at

An insider's look at the iconic drink and its role in shaping the American West. Distilleries are the new microbreweries, cropping up all over the West and producing brands that emulate the predecessors that were made in copper stills by emigrants and served in saloons and dance halls. This history of the spirit and its origins and migration across the country—and its place in shaping the West—celebrates the story of the golden elixir through first-hand accounts, evocative photographs, and historic cocktail recipes.

Jane Prerkins founded High West distillery in 2008 with her husband David. They have lived in Park City since 2004.

This event is made possible with support from Park City Friends of the Library and Utah Humanities.
