Craig Childs and Claire Taylor Book Launch: Virga and Bone

Join us at The King’s English Bookshop for the launch of author Craig Childs’ new book of essays, Virga & Bone: Essays from Dry Places, illustrated by local SLC artist Claire Taylor.

Dwelling on a vivid series of desert icons—a sheet of virga over Monument Valley, white seashells in dry desert sand, boulders impossibly balanced—Virga & Bone delves into the primacy of our starkest landscapes and the profound nature of the more-than-human.

Craig Childs has published more than a dozen critically acclaimed books, including The Secret Knowledge of Water and his most recent, Atlas of a Lost World. He has won the Orion Book Award and has twice won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature
