John G. Turner - Brigham Young

Friday, September 21, 2012 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
When Joseph Smith was assassinated in 1844, Brigham Young (1801-1877), an impoverished craftsman from New York, galvanized Smith’s straggling followers and, like Moses, led them to the promised land of the American West. Turner, a George Mason professor of religious studies, depicts Young as equal parts prophet and pioneer, focusing on his extraordinary charisma and leadership skills.
