December Announcement for the Utah Westerners

Notes from a Fish Lover:  Things I’ve Learned about

Mankind as a Result of Writing Columns for Thirty Years

Ann Cannon

We are delighted to have Ann Cannon as our December speaker.  Ann is a columnist and features writer for the Salt Lake Tribune.  Currently she gives Tribune readers advice, not unlike Doctor Laura (only not as mean) and Ann Landers (only not as dead).  She is also the award-winning author of many books for young readers, including CHARLOTTE’S ROSE, a novel written for a national audience about the migration of a Mormon handcart company composed primarily of Welsh church members. In addition to writing columns and books, Ann works as a bookseller at The King’s English Bookshop in Salt Lake City.

 Ann and her husband, Ken, have five sons, four daughters-in-law and five grandchildren.  Her interests include gardening, knitting, traveling, reading murder mysteries, watching baseball and football, and collecting antique dolls.  She and Ken husband are also the caretakers of three dogs, two cats, and a talking parrot who will outlive them all.

Ann will discuss what she has learned about mankind as a result of writing columns since the publication of her first column in PARENT EXPRESS over thirty years ago.
