The City Library will play host to award-winning Children’s author Obert Skye (author of the acclaimed Creature from My Closet series and the bestselling Leven Thumps series).


Obert Skye loves dragons. He wishes he had a few. Actually, he wishes he had a few dozen. Unfortunately, at the moment he doesn’t even have one.

Obert Skye was born on a stormy night in the back of a fast-moving taxi, and grew up in many different and varied temperatures. His favorite color is green, and he used to be allergic to cinnamon. He has not swum the English Channel or boxed a kangaroo. Obert is a fairly ordinary fellow who says he is simply hoping to repair what he has mistakenly undone. Obert currently lives indoors and near a thin, winding road. We would tell you more about him, but, frankly, we don't know much more. You can visit him online at www.abituneven.com.


Now in its 16th year, the Utah Humanities Book Festival has become Utah’s signature literary event. The festival is a chance for book lovers of all types to enjoy some great, free-of-charge events at locations throughout Utah.

The Salt Lake City portion of the Festival has been extended to two days this year, Sep 28–29, with author events taking place around Library Square, in the Main Library Auditorium, and in various Conference Rooms. This event is intended to be a kick off for the month of events to follow (the festival runs statewide for six weeks, from Sep 17–Oct 31). Visit the Utah Humanities Council website for a complete schedule of events.

Location: Children's Library Story Room
