Osmond is Doing It All Over Again
Donny Osmond is trekking over Europe promoting his new album and bringing back memories of a 13-year-old star with a mega-watt smile. "It will never be that way again," the 43-year-old singer said with relief, "I wouldn't want it to be, I don't want to be acting like I am 13 again. I will never be able to create that level of hype and hysteria, it's about the music now."

Prophet Joseph Smith Subject of Next Richard Dutcher Film
In a press conference earlier today, filmmaker Richard Dutcher announced that the subject of his next film will be the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith, Jr. With a working title of THE PROPHET: The Story of Joseph Smith, Jr., this will be Dutcher's first big- budget film, with a projected budget of $10 million. Funding for the film is still being arranged.

General Authority's Mission Experience Made Into Film
"The Other Side of Heaven," a film based on the memoirs of Elder John Groberg's book, "In the Eye of the Storm," will make its nationwide debut early in the Fall of 2001. The film is a culmination of a twenty-three-year dream by writer/director, Mitch Davis. Inspired after seeing the film "Chariots of Fire," Davis has been looking to tell a story of the missionary experience on the big screen.

Less than six months after touring Utah and Idaho and performing with LDS artists such as Peter Breinholt and Julie de Azevedo, 19-year-old Maren Ord is ready to come home. Well, at least for awhile.

Young Artists for the Arts is at it again. Last August, the local youth organisation which promotes local theatre productions by young people produced a comedy called "One Mark Two Many" as a wrap-up to the 1999-2000 season.

Bestsellers: Bestseller Lists See No Change
On both the LDS bestseller list and among the Mormon titles on the broader US national bestseller lists, there was little change. The new paperback of LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley's book "Standing for Something" remained a the top of the LDS bestsellers and the three Mormon titles that have been on the national lists for the longest all remained at about the same rank.

New Products: Mormon News Introduces New Product List
One of the biggest obstacles that producers of Mormon products face is getting word of their products out to those that might be interested. Reaching an audience outside of Utah is limited to trying to get the attention of swamped managers of LDS stores. While Church members that would be interested in a title complain that they have never heard of a book when asked why they haven't bought it.

A Commemorative Salute to the First 100 Temples
It was in October 1998 when President Gordon B. Hinckley announced that "in all likelihood, we will have 100 or more temples operating in the year 2000." Commemorating the realization of that promise, Deseret Book is pleased to present "The First 100 Temples" (Eagle Gate, a division of Deseret Book, $39.95), a beautiful compilation of drawings from bestselling artist Chad S. Hawkins that combines with historical summaries and inspirational stories about the first 100 temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
