Costco has asked me to do some book signings in their Utah stores (free labor for them, I guess); all are scheduled for 1:00-5:00pm:
- Dec 4: Lehi, Dec 6: Bountiful, Dec 8: Murray
- Dec 11: Orem, Dec 13: Sandy, Dec 15: Ogden
- Dec 20: Lehi, Dec 22: West Valley City
- Dec 27: Orem, Dec 29: Bountiful
Hopefully they’ll add a St. George date too.
On pages 37, 41, and 61 of the atlas, I promised to provide details about the early branches of the Church on this site. These are now available as part of my companion site, MormonPlaces. Here you can find a growing gazetteer of thousands of places relevant to Latter-day Saint history, including settlements, branches, stakes, cemeteries, buildings, and events. Soon you’ll be able to contribute your own knowledge about these places to this collaborative site.
We finally received the shipment, and the atlas is now on shelves! You can pick it up at the BYU Bookstore and in bookstores across Utah. It is available for order at BYU Studies (faster) or Amazon (cheaper). There’s also a great review at Library Journal.
This site is a companion to the new book, Mapping Mormonism: An Atlas of Latter-day Saint History, published by BYU Press and BYU Studies, scheduled to be on shelves in late September 2012! On this site we will be posting sample graphics from the atlas that you can use in classes and such, and much of the source data used to create the graphics.
