On Saturday, September 9th, The King’s English Bookshop will celebrate its 40th year in business in Salt Lake City’s 15th & 15th Neighborhood.

To contemporary eyes, it’s hard to believe that 15th & 15th was once a less than desirable neighborhood. But, that is the power of change that independent businesses can lead when they are rooted in their communities. From the decision to purchase their building in 15th & 15th more than 30 years, to a commitment to leading the “buy local” movement in Utah by helping to found both Vest Pocket Business Coalition and Local First Utah, Betsy Burton has shaped the minds, hearts and quality of life of Salt Lake City citizens in ways that run so deeply most of us will never truly see her impact.

We’re honored to have the support of The King’s English once again at Celebrate the Bounty as VIP Table Sponsors.

Celebrate the Bounty takes place on Thursday, October 12th from 7 – 10 pm at Ricos Warehouse (545 West 700 South) in Salt Lake City. Tickets for Celebrate the Bounty are on sale now! $65 for food and beverage, $55 for food only.  

VIP Tables are also available. VIP Sponsorship includes VIP Tickets for eight guests, four drink tickets for each guests, and other great perks at the event! If you'd like to become a VIP Table Sponsor of Celebrate the Bounty, please e-mail .
