Fortunately not by handcart.

For any of our readers in Utah (and their friends), I'm going to be in the Beehive State this week talking about Brigham Young in Logan, Provo, and Salt Lake City.

Tuesday, Sept. 11:
Utah State University, Old Main Room 225, 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 13:
Brigham Young University, Varsity Theatre, 11:00.

Thursday, Sept. 13:
Benchmark Books, Salt Lake City.

For details on the above talks, see http://johngturner.com/2012/09/09/utah-trip/ (still working out a few kinks on the website).

Closer to my home, I have an event at Politics & Prose on Sept. 21 and the Fall for the Book Festival on Sept. 28.

John, I'm about 1/3 of the of way through your book and am loving it! As a Mormon, I greatly appreciate it when bright informed scholars point their gaze our direction. It's a treat to read about Brigham Young from the perspective of an outsider looking in. Thanks for your time and energy. I've been a Mormon and a student of Mormonism for 50 years. Yet I've learned something new from practically every page of your book. I look forward to hearing you at Benchmark books next week.

Thanks, Sanford. Please introduce yourself at Benchmark.
