Signature Books was founded in 1981 to promote the study of Mormonism at its intersection with American history. Over the years we have created a unique literary repertoire—publishing biographies, documentary histories, personal essays, poetry, regional history, fiction, and humor. What began as an outlet for Mormon history left unpublished by the LDS Church now represents the best in Utah literature.
Signature Books is committed to expanding the scope of Mormon studies and to enhancing opportunities for creative and scholarly expression. Signature champions works that are honest, thoughtful, and grounded in the best critical thinking; that emphasize human experience and intellect; that advocate civil discourse; that engage and challenge; and that encourage new ways of approaching the past, present, and future.
