Jeff Metcalf reads and signs Requiem for the Living! +info

After nine years of keeping his prostate cancer at bay, the drugs were no longer working. The doctors told him his time was nearly up. And so Jeff Metcalf dove deep into writing, tasking himself to write one essay each week for a year. Requiem for the Living contains the best of the resulting fifty-two award-winning essays by an author who continues to defy his medical prognosis. The essays form a memoir of sorts, recounting good times and critical moments from Metcalf’s life. Funny, moving, profoundly personal, they draw from his rich experience. He does not describe a life defined by cancer but writes to discover what his life has been, who he has become, and what he has learned along the way. Brian Doyle, author of Two Voices, says, “I liked this book first for what it is, a cleanly written and fascinating story of a life spent paying close attention to the miracles. But I also like it very much for what it isn’t, and could so easily have been—a work of self-pity, a litany of ills and blaming.” Requiem for the Living is, finally, a triumphant testimony to the human spirit.

Though the West was won years and years ago, the pioneer spirit lives on in Salt Lake City (SLC). The local food scene is ripe with opportunity and alive with food entrepreneurs filled with ideas that many thought would never take off in Salt Lake City? Let alone fly. Salt Lake City may be known for a world-renowned choir and the Transcontinental Railroad s Golden Spike, but it s a modern, vibrant city that has held on to its pioneer spirit. And nowhere is that force stronger than in the local food scene, ripe with opportunity and ingenuity. The foodie community embraces collaboration and generosity, so local restaurants, bars, and suppliers pardon the pun feed on each other to reach greater heights. Entrepreneurs are serving everything from bone marrow to tumbleweed, while foraging for mushrooms and new ideas to elevate SLC and its culture. With 76 recipes for the home cook from the area's most celebrated eateries and showcasing over 200 full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor, Salt Lake City Chef's Table is the ultimate gift and keepsake cookbook for both tourists and residents alike.
