For those of you who don’t get our InkLinks newsletter, let me be the first to share the good news: Betsy Burton, our inimitable owner and the reason we all have jobs, has been declared one of Utah’s top cultural power brokers by the Salt Lake Tribune!
The Trib declares: “Our methodology was hardly scientific: The list is the product of shoutdowns in conference rooms by an overly opinionated staff. . . . Consider this list a conversation starter about what really matters in Utah’s art and entertainment universe and who’s making it happen.”
Betsy was selected for the following reasons: “With 30 years of experience, the owner of The King’s English Bookshop has become nationally respected and arguably the state’s leading literary tastemaker. In 2007, her influence even helped get a customer published.”
One of these days I hope to convince Betsy to write an acceptance speech (er, post); but until then, we’ll just say that we’re all very proud of Betsy, and would also like to point out that we knew how great she was first.
