Westminster College's Great Salt Lake Institute will host "Spirit of the Feather," a presentation on the significance of eagle feathers by Sia: The Comanche Nation Ethno-ornithological Initiative.

POETRY SOLICITATION
Don't just dream about being published; get serious. The Rumi Poetry Club is putting out a call for poems—up to three—to be published in its 10th anniversary book, Sand and Sky: 101 Poems from Utah. Three Utah poets will be invited to judge the poems and edit the volume. Poems of 26 lines or less are preferred, but some as long as 40 lines will be accepted. Send a short biography and indicate that the poems have not been published elsewhere and that you own the copyrights. Through June, no entry fee, send one word document to: rumipoetryclub@earthlink.net
