SALT LAKE CITY — General conference weekend for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is fast approaching, and with it comes a slew of events at Deseret Book locations throughout Utah and Arizona.
Several signings will take place giving fans an opportunity to meet and greet their favorite authors, artists and musicians.
All the events will take place Saturday, April 5.
Of particular interest is the continued tradition of Deseret Book’s “Ladies’ Night,” which is an opportunity for women to get out and have fun with the girls while the men attend the priesthood session of conference.
