Reminder that Michael Hubbard MacKay and Gerrit J. Dirkmaat , authors of From Darkness unto Light: Joseph Smith’s Translation and Publication of the Book of Mormon (published by Religious Studies Center/Deseret Book) will be here THIS WEDNESDAY, May 20th to sign and discuss their book. They will be here from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., speaking at 6:00, and will answer questions and sign books before and after that time. We hope you will be able to make that night but, if not, we can mail a signed copy or hold one here at the store for pick-up.

Anthony Sweat, who created the intriguing new artwork for the book (which better reflects the historical record), will also be here to discuss the role that art has played in how the translation is visualized. The authors will also bring replicas of the plates and spectacles to illustrate the events. This should be a very interesting evening!
