Book Discussion: The Sound of Gravel
with Jenny Richardson-Schlötter
The book of the evening is The Sound of Gravel: A Memoir by Ruth Wariner.
Her mother’s fourth child and her father’s 39th, Ruth Wariner was raised in a polygamist Mormon colony in Chihuahua, Mexico. Compassionate, compelling, intimate, and profound, Ruth’s coming-of-age story, the instant New York Times bestseller The Sound of Gravel, details her childhood in a compelling and intimate way that People Magazine hailed as: “heartbreaking, haunting, yet ultimately uplifting.” Through her resilience and ongoing commitment to her siblings, Ruth reveals that what we have inside of us is stronger and more powerful than even the most horrific childhood circumstances.
Come along and take part in our lively discussion. Newcomers welcome.
