LTU bannerWhat was life like for women in Mormonism’s early days?  Laurel Thatcher Ulrich Offers Answers in Her Powerful New Book, A House Full of Females

Recipient of a 1991 Pulitzer Prize for her chronicle of a courageous Maine housewife in A Midwife’s Tale,  Ulrich comes to Claremont Graduate University on February 16 to discuss her portrait of women’s lives during Mormonism’s formative years in A House Full of Females: Plural Marriage and Women’s Rights in Early Mormonism, 1835-1870.

LTUUlrich’s new book has been hailed as a moving, dazzling work that recovers the challenges and sorrows of pioneering Mormon women.  According to the New York Times Book Review, “the work of dedicated and imaginative historians like Ulrich allows us access to lost worlds.”


Ulrich’s visit to CGU will take place as part of the university’s Mormon Studies Speaker Series. We hope you’ll join us!
