“September Dawn,” directed by Christopher Cain and starring Jon Voight, Trent Ford and Tamara Hope, played on the big screen last fall and was released on DVD earlier this month. To coincide with the DVD release, Schutter wrote a novel with the same title, which was published by Author House.
Both the film and the novel focus on a “Romeo and Juliet” type romance set against the events leading up to the Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, where 120 men, women, and children on a wagon train bound for California were slaughtered by a group of religious zealots. It tells the unfolding love story of the son of a Mormon bishop and a pastor's daughter.
On the January 15th MAHQ show, Schutter will talk about how she became interested in writing “September Dawn” as well as her experiences working on the movie and the novel.
