City Art is pleased to welcome Dan O'Brien and Natalie Young in the Special Collections room of the City Library.

Dan O'Brien is a playwright, poet, and librettist. His play, The House in Scarsdale: A Memoir for the Stage, winner of the 2018 PEN America Award in Drama, received a critically acclaimed world premiere at The Theatre @ Boston Court in Los Angeles, directed by Michael Michetti, and was nominated for six Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle prizes including Best Play.

Natalie Young is a founding editor of the award-winning poetry magazine Sugar House Review. Natalie is left-handed, half Puerto Rican, and a fan of Dolly Parton and green olives. Recent poetry publications include Los Angeles Times, Rattle, Tampa Review, South Dakota Review, Green Mountains Review, and others.

CITYART presents weekly programs at the wonderful downtown Salt Lake City Library featuring invited readers. Readings are typically presented on the first three Wednesday evenings of the school year months at 7 p.m. An Open Reading usually follows, at which audience members may briefly read from their own work. Interested audience members are encouraged to volunteer to help with future programs, or to help organize youth activities.

This event is made possible with the support of City Art and Utah Humanities.
