SLMSSA Lecture Reminder, Plus Dinner with Kristine Haglund!

By December 2, 2009

Tomorrow at 7 pm Kristine Haglund will be delivering the first Salt Lake Mormon Studies Student Association lecture. See the organizer’s site for details.  I hope to see you there!

Plus, at 5 pm at Hector’s Miramar [Mexican food] Kristine herself will be having dinner, and we’d love for those who can to come on down and join her for an informal dinner and conversation. The address is 342 West 1300 South in Salt Lake City. Going west on 1300 S. toward I-15, it’s on the north side of the street just before you hit the freeway. Here is a google map just in case. Come on down, after all, it’s not every day that we get these sophisticated Easterners out here in the boondocks! Hope to see you.

  7. Kristine did a wonderful job, and I saw Jared typing furiously the whole time, so I suspect the talk will be posted soon.
