Richard Turley talked about the journals of Wilford Woodruff, the fourth President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and his 1890 manifesto. Woodruff was known as one of the church’s most prolific journal keepers, and for submitting the 1890 Manifesto, which officially banned plural marriages or polygamy in the church.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2014 LCV Cities Tour” in Salt Lake City, Utah, from May 4-8 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
