3/15: Join Gerald Elias and Terry Tempest Williams at Antelope Island

Friends of the Lake are invited to a very unusual performance, both in program and venue.

Renowned Utah author, conservationist, and activist Terry Tempest Williams has organized a gathering of poets who have been writing poems inspired by the wonders and ecology of the Great Salt Lake.

On March 15, there will be a reading of some of those poems at the Garr Ranch on Antelope Island. One of them will be set to music and performed by local musicians Igor Iachimciuc and Gerald Elias. There will be additional Great Salt Lake-inspired music by composer Matthew Russell Durrant and other members of the University of Utah School of Music.

The one-hour, free performance will take place at 4:00pm on Friday, March 15 at Fielding Garr Ranch in Antelope Island State Park.

Join us for this unique experience, celebrating Great Salt Lake.
