May 12, 2022 Meeting With Speaker Riley Black

Our May speaker is Riley Black.  Riley will talk about her latest book, The Last Days of the Dinosaurs (released April 24). Riley is a prolific and gifted science writer whose work includes Skeleton Keys, My Beloved Brontosaurus, Written in Stone, and When Dinosaurs Ruled. Riley lives in Salt Lake City and frequently works with field crews here in Utah and far beyond. Her expertise in paleontology has been featured across a broad range of media. And UFOP is proud to call her one of our own. Join us in celebration of Riley’s new book!
