Author Events, July 2nd: Zion's Books (Provo) and Benchmark Books (Salt Lake) July 01 2014

We are happy to invite you to two author events this Wednesday (July 2nd, 2014) in Salt Lake and Utah Counties. At 1:30 pm Adam Miller (author of Rube Goldberg Machines: Essays in Mormon Theology) and Joseph Spencer (author of For Zion: A Mormon Theology of Hope) will be signing copies of their books at Benchmark Books in Salt Lake City. 

Later that day, at 6:00 pm, Adam and Joseph will be joined by David Bokovoy (author ofAuthoring the Old Testament: Genesis—Deuteronomy) at the opening of ZION'S BOOKS, on Center Street in Provo. The event will include a panel discussion with the three authors on the subject of the relevance and value of scripture. The discussion, including an audience Q&A, will be moderated by Janiece Johnson (a BYU-Idaho professor of religion). 

Both events present exciting opportunities to learn more about the importance of scripture and to meet and engage with some of Mormonism's most brilliant and influential scriptural scholars. Both events will feature light refreshments, and are free and open to the public.
