Ann Cannon is the advice columnist for The Salt Lake Tribune, you probably know her as "Ask Ann Cannon".

She's also written award-winning books for readers from young children to young adults.

And, she occasionally teaches creative writing and works as a bookseller at the famous King's English Bookshop in Salt Lake City.  Ann also is a plant consultant at Western Garden.

Ann came on The PLACE to talk about some of the most interesting questions she's received including the most bizarre question she's ever received: " During the intermission of a recent performance of THE LION KING, the twenty-something man sitting in front of us passed gas. . . . Is there a person at the theater whose job it is to take care of this kind of offensive behavior from an audience member? Ir should we have confronted this person ourselves?"
