I can brag about this because it has absolutely nothing to do with me and everything to do with the amazing women who create Segullah, the journal. Haven’t read it yet? Well, you’re missing out–subscribe already!
AML, The Association for Mormon Letters, has recognized Segullah for its contribution to Mormon literature in general and women’s voices in particular. The AML will be present Segullah with their 2007 Special Award at a luncheon during their 2008 Annual Conference. Kathryn Soper and Justine Dorton will represent Segullah at the awards banquet, where Kathryn will accept the award.
The conference will be held Saturday, March 8, 2008, at Brigham Young University, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, in the Ernest L. Wilkinson Student Center at Brigham Young University. The event is free (except for the luncheon) and the public (that includes you) is welcome to attend.
This year’s theme is “The scriptures as literature, literature as scripture.” You can link to the full program here.
At the conclusion of the regular conference sessions, Eugene and Charlotte England will host a reception that evening at their home, during which the AML Award Winners will read from their own works. Justine Dorton will attend and will be reading selected works.
