Sunstone Celebrates Elbert Peck

Sunstone Celebrates Elbert Peck Join us this evening for a joyous farewell for Elbert Peck, our long-time editor, publisher, and director. Program: ‘RetrosPECKtive” A look at Elbert’s fifteen years with ‘Sunstone,’ complete with personal glimpses and funny stories from many good friends. Speaker: Philip Barlow The Public Thought of Elbert Peck Abstract: Elbert Peck has been both celebrated and vilified for championing an open forum for the exploration of Mormon ideas, history, and culture. In this discussion, however, I believe the depth, breadth, and quality of his mind has not yet been fully appreciated. These brief reflections will take stock of his mind as disclosed in his writings, especially his ‘ Sunstone’ editorials.
