9/8/08: The 19th Wife

Ann Eliza Young

Salt Lake City, UT – Ann Eliza Young was 24 when she married her prophet Brigham Young. By her account, she was his 19th wife, and when she filed for divorce in 1873, she made headlines in newspapers and tabloids around the country. Novelist David Ebershoff says those contemporary accounts remind him of reports he read on the polygamists in Eldorado, Texas. In his new book The 19th Wife, Ebershoff weaves together the two time periods to create a portrait of polygamy and its effect on the lives of those who live it.

Salt Lake City, UT – When film critic David Gilmour's son Jesse was 15 years old, he was in trouble and he hated school. David tried helping, but nothing seemed to work. That's when the two struck upon a deal: Jesse could drop out of school on one condition. He had to sit down with his father and watch three movies a week. David has written a book about the experience, and Wednesday he joins Doug to talk about the relationship between father and son - and about the life lessons that can be learned at the movies.
