First, a note to congratulate the one, the only, J. Spencer Fluhman, whose book A Peculiar People: Anti-Mormonism and the Making of Religion in 19th-Century America, won the best first book award at the just-concluded Mormon History Association. And congratulations to Christopher Jones, winner of Best Article Award for his piece Mormonism in the Methodist Marketplace: James Covel and the Historical Background of Doctrine and Covenants 39-40" in BYU Studies Quarterly. Also, congrats. to our contributor John Turner, whose biography of Brigham YOung won the Best Biography award.
And, a note from Jared Farmer, whose wonderful and pedagogically rich e-book Mormons in the Media, 1830-2012 we blogged about last year.
Dear fellow followers of Mormon (and/or Utah) history,
Please excuse the impersonal nature of this note. I simply want to call your attention to a newly launched website that serves as the permanent home for my two (!) free e-books:
• Mormons in the Media, 1830–2012 (revised edition, now in iBooks format as well as PDF)
• The Image of Mormons: A Sourcebook for Teachers and Students
Feel free to share this link with anyone who might be interested.
