Jedediah Rogers to speak on John Nuttall

September 28, 2007: Jedediah Rogers to speak on John Nuttall

At long last the diaries of L. John Nuttall are available. The editor, Jedediah S. Rogers, has performed an enormous service by carefully transcribing and anotating them. Nuttall was notably the personal secretary to LDS church presidents in hiding, John Taylor and Wilford Woodruff. Jed will explain all this at Benchmark Books on Friday, September 28. The event will kick off at 5:30 p.m. at the bookstore located at 3269 South Main Street in Salt Lake City. As many of you know, Benchmark Books is located on the second floor of the building just north of McDonalds on the northeast corner of 3300 South and Main Street. The environment is always friendly. If you have not visited them before, Benchmark Books is a fun and interesting bookstore. Jed will begin speaking around 6:30 and will be available to sign books and answer questions. This volume, In The President's Office: The Diaries of L. John Nuttall, 1879-1892, is the eleventh installment in the Significant Diaries Series. Other volumes will also be available that night.
