Gwendolyn Wright

Salt Lake City, UT – Gwendolyn Wright says that history isn't about answers; it's about investigation and evidence and personal stories. Wright is one of the hosts of the public television series "History Detectives," and the author of a new book on American architecture. She'll be in Salt Lake this weekend for the Utah State History Conference - and today she joins Doug to talk about history, architecture and what objects can tell us about the world we share.
