9/21/06: Joseph Smith - Rough Stone Rolling

LDS Church founder Joseph Smith was born December 23, 1805 in Sharon, Vermont.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Last December marked the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith's birth. As the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Smith's life and theology has had a profound effect on American religion, and on the culture of Utah. Nevertheless, he remains an enigmatic and controversial figure. Historian Richard Bushman, author of Joseph Smith: Rough Stone Rolling, will be in Utah next Monday, and we're taking this opportunity to rebroadcast Doug's conversation with him. (Repeat)

Dr. Richard Bushman will speak Monday afternoon, September 25 at 2:30 at the Park City Library (1255 Park Ave). He is a guest of the Park City History Book Club, in cooperation with the Park City Literary Festival.
