If you are in Utah and interested in Mormon history, there are several events this week you’ll want to note. Laurel Ulrich’s newest book, A Household of Females (Knopf), was officially released last week at AHA. (I highlighted it here.) She is now on her release tour in Deseret, and you won’t want to miss it. She was interviewed on RadioWest this morning, and that podcast should be available soon. But she also has two public appearances:
- Tomorrow, January 10th, she’ll be at the indispensable Benchmark Books. She’ll be signing copies from 5:30 to 7:30, and speaking at 6pm. The official details are here, and the facebook page is here.
- On Wednesday, January 11th, Ulrich will be speaking at the Salt Lake Public Library at 7pm. The event is sponsored by the Mormon Women’s History Initiative. Seats will go quickly, so show up early. More details are here.
This is a phenomenal book. You don’t want to miss it.
