  • Utah NOW. September 7, 2007: Robert Fulghum.

    This week on Utah NOW, the writer, philosopher and sometime-Utahn, Robert Fulghum will be with us. Fulghum came to prominence by sharing the lessons he learned in kindergarten. His essays are observations of the smallest things that raise the biggest questions. We also say farewell to Utah teacher and statesman J.D. Williams.
