He will deliver the 36th annual Juanita Brooks lecture on Thursday, March 28, at 7:00 p.m. in Cox Auditorium on the campus of Dixie State University in St. George.

He says “My lecture revolves around Juanita Brooks and her place as a "heroic" writer, examining what "history" meant in her context and how that shapes the modern understanding of Utah and its past.”
