2021 Leonard J. Arrington Mormon History Lecture Series

Dr. Laurie Maffly-Kipp will present “A Marvelous Work: Reading Mormonism in West Africa” as part of the USU University Libraries’ Leonard J. Arrington Mormon History Lecture series. Maffly-Kipp’s lecture will discuss how the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pamphlets, books and other church materials circulated in West Africa two decades before offical missionary work began, leading to a unique “native” Mormonism. Believers crafted churches from these bare materials and doctrinal interpretations during the 1960s and 1970s.

The lecture will be held at the Newel & Jean Daines Concert Hall at 7 p.m. and will also be broadcasted live at youtube.com/USULibraries. It is free and open to the public.
