The BYU Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts has a new associate director of publications. Don L. Brugger will assist publications director Alison V. P. Coutts in overseeing an increasing number of publishing projects and handling other departmental matters. He will continue as managing editor of FARMS's Insights newsletter, production editor of the Journal of Book of Mormon Studies and other publications, and leader of an editorial team.
Since 1977 Don has gained publishing experience through editorial work at the Los Angeles Times, Deseret Book, the Ensign magazine, and FARMS. Complementing that experience is his study of English and journalism (he received a B.S. degree in English from Utah State University and an M.A. in American literature from BYU). Don is pleased to be able to keep his hand in editing projects and to continue working with his fellow 'crackerjack' editors while assuming new administrative responsibilities.
