Wallace Jeffs, Shauna Packer, Sherry Taylor | Destroying Their God: How I Fought My Evil Half-Brother to Save My Children

This event is free and open to the public and will take place at the bookshop.

Join Wallace Jeffs, Shauna Packer, and Sherry Taylor for a discussion and signing of their new nonfiction book, Destroying Their God: How I Fought My Evil Half-Brother to Save My Children.

Growing up as half-brother to future Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saint prophet Warren Jeffs, Wallace tried to follow FLDS teachings.  After he built a successful business, the church required him to marry a second wife. Wallace fathered twenty children, but he never felt comfortable with polygamy or many other FLDS beliefs.

As his prophet-brother increasingly manipulated him, Wallace started hearing about FLDS atrocities. On the day the FBI arrested Warren Jeffs for child rape, the prophet was en route to reclaim Wallace's second wife for himself. Wallace defied the prophet and soon ended up in a coma. Though Wallace feared FLDS sabotage caused his car crash, he kept fighting the sect.

With today's movement against male abusers, Wallace's story reminds us that power and position don't corrupt all men. In 2018, Wallace found resolution by marrying an LDS woman in the Salt Lake Temple. At the same time, he renews our concern for the thousands who still live under FLDS control, including some of Wallace's own children.
