Celebrate Banned Book Week with Dorothee


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 at the King’s English Bookshop in Salt Lake City on Saturday, October 1 at 4pm. 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.”

The King’s English Bookshop is at 1511 South 1500 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84105 (tel: 801-484-9100). This event is presented in partnership with the Utah Humanities Book Festival.
