Jack Weyland’s Papers Come to BYU
Jack Weyland began publishing novels in 1980 with his well-known and loved Charly. Previously he wote short stories for The New Era. Given the vibrant LDS literature community today, it is hard to believe that before Charly there was little in the way of Mormon fiction. Jack has opened doors for many LDS writers who have followed in his path.
We are pleased to announce that Jack Weyland has donated his papers to Perry Special Collections. At this point the papers consist of letters and critiques from his publisher and others from 1979-2002. Jack’s writing career is still in full swing with two books recently published. As a result the collection will continue to grow.
