On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Jan. 22

Born on this day (1865), Nephi Anderson's most acclaimed work was his first novel, Added Upon, in which spirit children move from the pre-existence to the mortal world to the life after death. Originally published in 1898, the novel influenced many works of Mormon literature, including Saturday's Warrior. Anderson went on to write numerous novels, nonfiction books, short stories, and works of poetry, much of which involved LDS themes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nephi_Anderson
