Shovels & Rope, C’mon Utah! — Fri., Apr. 19, 5:30 pm

Blue Bicycle Books is proud to welcome Shovels & Rope — Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent –  as they debut their new book C’mon Utah (hb., $30), based on the song from their By Blood album.

Cary Ann, Michael and illustrator Julio Cotto Rivera will be signing copies in the bookstore courtyard, Fri., Apr. 19, 5:30 pm. 

Can’t make it? Order a signed copy here.

“C’mon Utah!” tells the legend of a magical horse that appears to help reunite families that were separated by a border wall. The lyrics are illustrated by former Charleston artist Julio Cotto Rivera.

Cary Ann on the book: “The song was written before actual family separations at the border were in the news, and suddenly the magical realism of a horse with superpower GPS who never gets tired of running seemed like something the world actually needed.” 

This event is free and open to the public.
