Washington D.C.: News and the Nation's Capitol

Oct 27, 2017

Put on your KUER socks, slap on your NPR temporary tattoo, and join us in Washington D.C. for the news junkie tour of a lifetime! Hang out with Rachel Martin and Bob Mondello, gaze upon the studios where Morning Edition is recorded, and witness The Tiny Desk in all its (really quite small) glory. Have lunch with Utah’s only D.C.-based journalist and visit the Newseum—yes, they have a whole museum for news!

August 10: Midnight in Paris

Aug 2, 2017

Take a journey back in time to Paris in the Roaring 20s, with Woody Allen’s award-winning Midnight in Paris! Come enjoy a free screening of this delightful movie, sponsored by KUER and Go Learn of the University of Utah, and fall in love with Paris again. "There is no city like this in the world. There never was." Professor Jeremy Rosen of the U's English Department will introduce key elements of this movie, the city it lovingly portrays, and its time travel to the heyday of modern art and literature produced in Paris's expatriate community.

"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris...then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." Ernest Hemingway   

Writers, artists, and lovers of food and wine have longed to travel back in time to the sizzling Paris of the 1920’s. Travel with us as we bring to life the razzle dazzle of the City of Lights that inspired an enormously talented cast of expatriates and bohemians that personified Jazz Age Paris.
