Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright discusses his latest book at this event. A deep penetrating look into the world of Scientology, "Going Clear" is based on more than two hundred interviews and years of research in which Wright uncovers the inner workings of the Church of Scientology. At the book’s center are brilliant science-fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard and David Miscavige, his successor faced with the unenviable task of preserving the church. In the book, Wright examines what fundamentally makes a religion a religion and whether Scientology deserves this constitutional protection. Employing his journalistic skills of observation, understanding and shaping a story into a compelling narrative, Wright delivers an evenhanded yet keenly incisive book that reveals the essence of Scientology.
