Nonfiction - "Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape" by Jenna Miscavige Hill
Our June meeting is Sunday June 23rd at 1PM in the Central Court at LACMA (between the book store and the LACMA Cafe). For June we decided to choose a nonfiction book by Jenna Miscavige Hill called "Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape."
Jenna Miscavige Hill, niece of Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, was raised as a Scientologist but left the controversial religion in 2005. In Beyond Belief, she shares her true story of life inside the upper ranks of the sect, details her experiences as a member Sea Org—the church's highest ministry, speaks of her "disconnection" from family outside of the organization, and tells the story of her ultimate escape.
