  1. Thanks for posting this Ardis! It is now posted at MormonConferences.org and another hundred people will know about it by tomorrow.

  2. Thanks, Kent. I should have asked, but I didn’t think you necessarily posted one-shots like this. I’ll remember that next time.

  3. If it’s scholarly and it’s Mormon, I post it!

  4. Sigh! Oaklahoma is still too far away. But it is much closer than Utah.

  5. Sorry. I apparently can’t spell Oklahoma, even if it is right in front of my face.

  6. That’s awl rite, Bryce. {g}

    Part of the reason for giving this meeting extra publicity was because it’s in a part of the country that doesn’t often have a chance for such speakers. I’ll be willing to publicize *almost* any kind of mainstream-friendly gathering being held outside of the intermountain west, if people who know about them will pass the information along. As long as there is a website to link to (Keepa or anything else), it looks like Kent will also publicize the more scholarly meetings, too.
