Upcoming Speeches and Presentations


The Salt Lake City Public Library


I’m often asked when and where I’m speaking publicly.  So I’ve finally decided to put together a little running calendar of more or less significant public speeches that I’ll continually update whenever I have additional information or new details.  I hope it will be helpful to those who’ve asked.

  • Eric Ringger

    Thank you, Dan.

  • RaymondSwenson

    The internet broadcast of the FAIR conference was great! I was able to listen on my tablet computer while driving around Salt Lake. It even came in handy at the conference venue, allowing me to listen while I checked out the bookstore.

  • Scott_Lloyd

    For someone who (by some accounts) was supposedly “reined in” by whomever for his apologetics activities, you seem to be awfully busy appearing in some rather respectable venues, Daniel.

    • DanielPeterson

      The Brethren have, plainly, ordered that I be silenced. That’s why, among other things, my “Deseret News” columns were cancelled back in June 2012. And that’s why I’m not speaking at graduation this year, or at Education Week, or on behalf of the BYU Speakers Bureau, etc.
