Her books use rhythm, rhyme, and repetition to promote reading and encourage children to interact with the text. Kristyn has received starred reviews and a blue ribbon from the Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. She is also a Utah Book Award nominee. She is the mother of seven musical and theatrical children, and is married to a Utah Highway Patrolman. They live in Layton, Utah. Visit www.KristynCrow.com for more information.


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.

The City Library will play host to several additional author events throughout October, including award-winning Children’s author Obert Skye (author of Pinocula (Creature from My Closet) and the bestselling Leven Thumps series) in the Children’ Library Story Room at 2pm on Saturday, October 19th.
