Book Events with John Dinger

John S. Dinger, editorJohn Dinger, editor of The Nauvoo City and High Council Minutes, will discuss his new book this month at two Utah bookstores. Dinger, a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for Ada County in Boise, Idaho, will be at Confetti Antiques and Books in Spanish Fork, on Tuesday, January 24, and at Benchmark Books in Salt Lake City on Wednesday, January 25. He will discuss the significance of these two governing councils and their role in the events leading to the death of Mormonism’s founder, as well as their overall significance in shaping Mormon history.

“The publication of the Nauvoo city and high council minutes are a game changer in Mormon studies,” says Tom Kimball of Signature Books. “It is also interesting, with publication of this book, that the LDS Church History Library just opened up a typescript of the city council minutes for the public.” In the past, historians have been denied access to any version of these minutes. The originals are still unavailable to researchers.
