What To Expect From The Utah Humanities Book Festival

The Utah Humanities Book Festival is held every single year by the Utah Humanities Council (also known as UHC for short). This is basically a nonprofit organization that is independent and that tries to bring different programs to people from Utah. The most popular tools known by people familiar with UHC are the Utah Public Radio and KCPW, although the Utah Humanities Book Festival is also quickly gaining popularity.
