International Day of Archaeology: Book Buzz
October 19, 2019
Book Buzz supports communities and education endeavors across the state by lending lending sets of titles to clubs, book groups, libraries, organizations, schools, and community centers. Each sets contains at least 15 copies that check-out for 8 weeks. In this partnership Utah State Libraries is connecting Book Buzz’s network of readers with State History’s curated knowledge to promote titles of local interest, offering Utah residents greater understanding of geographies, cultures, or periods of historical significance relevant to the areas around them.
A UtahPAN partners – BLM-Utah, PLPCO, and SITLA – are sponsoring four archaeological titles (1491, House of Rain, Ghosts of Gold Mountain, and Wisdom Sits in Places) to kick off an archaeological book club circuit, coinciding with International Archaeology Day in October 19, 2019. Archaeologists from the Antiquities Section of the Division of State History will assemble a Book Club toolkit complete with discussion questions for each of these books.
