In celebration of the 16th annual Utah Humanities Book Festival, the Pleasant Valley Branch is hosting Val Holley, author of 25th Street Confidential: Drama, Decadence, and Dissipation along Ogden's Rowdiest Road.  Generations of Ogdenites have grown up absorbing 25th Street's legends of corruption, menace, and depravity.  Val Holley will discuss Ogden's transformation from quiet settlement to chaotic transcontinental railroad junction as waves of fortune seekers swelled the city's population.  Books will be available for purchase.
