Inside Scientology (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
Journalist Janet Reitman will discuss and sign her new book Inside Scientology, the first full, journalistic history of the Church of Scientology, based on the article Reitman wrote for Rolling Stone in 2007, which was a finalist for the National Magazine Award.
"Inside Scientology is an engrossing, groundbreaking work that brings a welcome sense of fair-mindedness to a subject that is, for many journalists and scholars, too hot to touch. Reitman has accomplished the miracle of adding light without heat."--Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11
Janet Reitman was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in 2007 for the Rolling Stone story “Inside Scientology,” from which this book grew. She is a contributing editor at Rolling Stone.
