'Pain of polygamy still lingers in LDS lives, new book asserts'
I spoke with author Carol Lynn Pearson about her new book about Mormon polygamy:
A new book by prominent Mormon author Carol Lynn Pearson explores -- and condemns -- former and current teachings by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the subject of polygamy.
"There have been dozens and dozens -- maybe hundreds -- of books that touch on or are solely devoted to looking at Mormon polygamy in a historical sense," said Pearson in a phone interview. "But there has been really nothing that looks at what is happening today in the lives of Mormon women and men in terms of the lasting impact that the policies and teachings around polygamy still have today."
