SALAMANDER: Mark Hofmann and the Mormon Forgery Murders
Monday October 1, 2018 6:00 & 7:30 pm It’s been thirty-three years [October 1985] since Mark Hofmann, the infamous forger of the “Salamander Letter”, shook Salt Lake City with a series of pipe bombs in an attempt to cover his trail of forgeries. Join us at Moon’s Rare Books on Monday, October 1st for our monthly fireside with special guest speaker Brent F. Ashworth for a look back at this very significant yet tragic event. As one of the foremost collectors of early Mormon books and documents, Brent Ashworth will share his first-hand experiences in dealing with Mark Hofmann. Several Hofmann forgeries will be on display. There will only be 2 firesides this month so make your reservation early!
