The group Friends of the Merrill-Cazier Library at Utah State University invites the campus and Cache Valley communities to its spring lecture, Thursday, March 4. The evening’s featured guest is Brian Q. Cannon. The event is free and all are invited. The spring lecture is Thursday, March 4, and begins at 7 p.m. in the Merrill-Cazier Library’s auditorium, Room 101. In the spotlight is “Utah in the Twentieth Century,” a book co-edited by Cannon and published by USU Press. The book includes essays by a number of noted scholars. Professor Cannon has taught history courses on the American West in the twentieth century at Brigham Young University since 1992.
