COVID-19 has again affected the Community of Christ Historic Sites Foundation fall lecture series.
"Charley's a Gal: James Jesse Strang's First Plural Wife, Elvira Eliza Field" with Amy DeRogatis has been postponed. DeRogatis has agreed to share in the Spring 2023 Lecture Series.
DeRogatis's lecture, in addition to Vickie Speek's lecture, "Polygamy, Visions, and Power: How the Strangites Became RLDS" will help participants understand James Strang, Elvira Eliza Field, and their Latter Day Saint faith community.
Additional details regarding the Spring Series will be released in the New Year. In the meantime, the remaining two lectures in the "Stories of the Scattered Saints" are still scheduled.
November 10: "Preserving Nauvoo History with the Stroke of a Brush: Life and Legacy of Profile Painter, Sutcliffe Maudsley" with Steven Bule
November 17: "Divergent Paths of the Community of Christ: The Past One Hundred Years" with Steven L. Shields
