Stephen Trimble On Thursday's Access Utah

Stephen Trimble

It’s UPR’s Spring Member Drive. On Access Utah that means some very special programming, including some Best Of segments from favorite episodes and some great new conversations. Today our guest for the hour is writer and photographer Stephen Trimble. We’ll talk about some of his recent pieces in various publications titled variously: “Facebook, alas, is not your neighborhood bar, “Restore Utah’s national monuments and make the fix permanent,” “Utah in 125 Words,” and “Big Books at Big Times--Expanded New Edition!!!”

As writer, editor, and photographer, Stephen Trimble has published 25 award-winning books during 45 years of paying attention to the landscapes and peoples of the Desert West. His most recent book is The Capitol Reef Reader. Trimble makes his home in Salt Lake City and in the redrock country of Torrey, Utah.
