Department of Communication professor Julia Corbett was featured in an article in The Salt Lake Tribune, which looks at the inspiration behind her memoir, "Seven Summers: A Naturalist Homesteads
in the Modern West."
In "Seven Summers," the Tribune describes, "Corbett writes about fleeing Salt Lake City every summer — pets and power tools in tow — to build a cabin in Wyoming. Like a contemporary homesteader, the writer wrestles with rural sexism and her own naiveté while she’s carefully observing the rhythms of wildlife and the seasonal changes on her property."
The memoir is featured as the Tribune's Utah Lit book club selection for the month of May.
