E141: “You Will Not Talk about that Woman in My Church”: How We Wrote “Mormon Enigma.”

“Mormon Enigma: Emma Hale Smith” was a turning point in the telling of Mormon history. And it has a fascinating history of its own. Linda King Newell recounts how she and Valeen Avery Tippetts wrote this groundbreaking book. This episode was recorded at the 2009 Salt Lake Symposium.

    Very informative episode.

    Linda’s death reminded me that I hadn’t read “Mormon Enigma” from cover to cover, so I did so in the past week. The book deserves all the praise it has received.
