SL09391 Panel: Discussion on Mormon Enigma 25 Years Later

Linda King Newell and Val Tippets Avery’s biography of Emma Hale Smith was published in fall 1984 after nine years of research and writing. It won three awards: MHA’s Best Book Award; John Whitmer Historical Association’s Best Book Award; and the Evans Award for Excellence in Western Biography. Nine months after the publication of the book, LDS Church authorities issued a speaking ban on the authors. Linda will discuss the impact of that action as well as other unpublished responses to Mormon Enigma: Emma Hale Smith.
