LDS Sports and Recreation Oral History Project topic for BYU lecture Oct. 2

On Thursday, Oct. 2, Jessie L. Embry, associate director of the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University, will discuss the LDS Sports and Recreation Oral History Project and her new e-book, “Spiritualized Recreation: Mormon All-Church Athletic Tournaments and Dance Festivals, 1908-1971” during a Harold B. Lee Library House of Learning Lecture.

The lecture will be held in the Lee Library Auditorium on the first floor at 2 p.m. A reception honoring the people interviewed for the project will be held immediately following the lecture. All are invited to attend.

For the last five years, Embry has researched recreational activities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, conducting oral history interviews with original participants. Her research will also be displayed in a special exhibit in the L. Tom Perry Special Collections.

Embry’s book can be downloaded at no charge at http://reddcenter.byu.edu/spiritualized.dhtml .
