Salt Lake City's Main Library, designed by internationally-acclaimed architect Moshe Safdie, embodies the idea that a library is more than a repository of books and computers; it reflects and engages the city's imagination and aspirations. The building, which opened in February 2003, is double the previous space with 240,000 square feet for more than 500,000 books and other materials, and room for the collection to grow.

City Art will present fiction writers Lex Williford and Nate Liederbach, Oct. 26, 2016, at The City Library, 4th Floor Conference Room. Williford is the winner of the 10th Annual Rose Metal Press Short Short Chapbook Contest, judged by Ira Sukrungruang. A concise and compelling novella-in-flash spanning decades from the 1960s to the present, Williford's "Superman on the Roof" offers an elegiac coming-of-age tale and a family portrait imbued with tragedy, guilt, grief, and forgiveness. Liederbach is the author of the collections Doing a Bit of Bleeding (Ghost Road), Negative Spaces (Elik), and the forthcoming Tongues of Men and of Angels: Nonfictions Ataxia (sunnyoutside).
