In just a few weeks, on the shores of picturesque Lake Union, Seattle will again be favored by some Mormon goodness in the forms of essays, papers, and insight.
The preliminary program is available (PDF), and there is much to look forward to. Margaret Young will be wearing her President of the Association of Mormon Letters, fiction writer extraordinaire, BYU English professor hat rather than her Nobody Knows hat; a super session on the Old Testament with Owen Clark and Stephen Whitlock; George Smith discussing his book on polygamy, particularly focusing on the women of Nauvoo; a largely BCC Pillars of Faith session with Steve Evans and J. Stapley, and a third yet unnamed; Stapley will also present a paper looking at Mormon deathbed ritual; Tom Kimball will speak on Mormon book collecting; and Patrick McKenzie will take a scientist’s look at the resurrection.
Also, the Friday evening before, there will be a social in Kenmore.
