Spend an Evening With An Author: Mark Staker at Confetti Books, May 6

By May 3, 2010

Hearken, O Ye People: The Historical Setting of  Joseph Smith’s Ohio Revelations  by Mark L. Staker

[Email from Donnie at Confetti Antiques and Books]

Mark Staker will be at our store to speak about and sign his book on Thursday, May 6, 2010.
Mark will be here from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., speaking at 6:30, and will answer questions and sign books before and after the event.

Many of the early Ohio converts would later become powerful leaders and household names among the Latter-day Saints: Sidney Rigdon, Lyman Wight, N. K. Whitney and Orson Hyde among others. Staker draws on both familiar and obscure sources to tease out the relationships (family, business, church) between these early converts and their collective entry into Mormonism.

Building on earlier treatments of this period (such as Building the City of God and Heavens Resound), Staker takes an in-depth look at the financial side of Ohio. One of the four sections of the book analyzes consecration, showing the critical role that N.K. Whitney played. The final section digs into the complex structure of the ambitious Kirtland Safety Society, providing more detail on this volatile episode than ever before. ?
