Upcoming KUED Events
Join KUED at the Utah Theatre in Logan for a free screening of Episode 1 of Little Women on Masterpiece.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Loved by generations of women worldwide, Little Women is a truly universal coming of age story. Set against the backdrop of the Civil War, the story follows sisters Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother, Marmee, and while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman: from sibling rivalry and first love, to loss and marriage.
Based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, this three-part adaptation from the award-winning creator of Call the Midwife Heidi Thomas (Cranford, Upstairs Downstairs) will be directed by Vanessa Caswill (Thirteen, My Mad Fat Diary).
KUED Kids invites you to participate in Salt Lake County Library Services Kids Fiesta, the 6th annual celebration of El día de los niños/El día de los libros. Kids Fiesta is a community celebration of books, reading, and culture. The event takes place on Saturday April 28th from 11 am to 2 pm. This event is free to the public, and features live music, dancing, artists, and pinatas in addition to the Community Partner Room. KUED Kids will have a table at the event and the kids will get the chance to make their own Pinkalicious wand and pick up a free book to take home, so stop by and say hi!
Join KUED and the Salt Lake City Library as we kickoff The Great American Read! There will be booksellers, interactive activities, program announcements, and opportunities for you to share a story about the book that changed your life with KUED viewers.
The Great American Read is an eight-part television and online series designed to spark a national conversation about reading and the books that have inspired, moved, and shaped us. The series will engage audiences with a list of 100 diverse books. Audiences are encouraged to read the books, vote from the list of 100, and share their personal connections to the titles.
The Great American Read premieres Tuesday, May 22 at 7PM on KUED with a launch special, kicking off a summer of reading and voting. Then in the fall, seven new episodes of the series will air as the quest to find America’s most beloved book moves into high gear. Episodes from the series will feature appearances by celebrities, athletes, experts, authors, and everyday Americans advocating for their favorite book.
The stories are fiction, but the excitement is real! Check out the trailer.
