Janis Grady's new book on life in Scientology: Jon Atack's take, and an excerpt - 2017-07-22
Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. For more than three years he's been helping us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. Today, he's introducing a new book he wants you to be aware of.
The three Gillham children were the founding members of the Commodore's Messenger Organization. As Janis says, "As a child of 11, in January 1968, I arrived on the Scientology ship, the Royal Scotman where I became an original Commodore's Messenger for L. Ron Hubbard. Over the next 11 years I spent six hours or more a day with L. Ron Hubbard, until December of 1979, when shortly after, Hubbard went into 'hiding' with fellow Commodore's Messengers, Annie and Pat Broeker."
