Reserve Alert: THE FAMILY

Recent news stories about Governor Mark Sanford have focused on the “C Street House” in Washington, D.C., where he and other public servants dealing with situations similar to Sanford’s, have stayed and received counseling.

Last year, Jeff Sharlet published a book about the organization behind the C Street House, The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power. Sharlet appeared on the Rachel Maddow Show twice this week.

Sharlat also wrote a piece on Salon.com yesterday, Sex and power inside “the C Street House.”

Sharlet’s book is now at #14 on Amazon and is showing heavy reserves in libraries. The trade paperback version that came out earlier this month is now sold out, but reprints are scheduled to be available beginning July 26.
