More Attention for THE FAMILY

Jeff Sharlet returned to NPR‘s Fresh Air to talk to Terry Gross about the secretive fundamentalist group “The Family,” which counts among its members influential congressmen and senators. Recent news stories, including those about family members John Ensign’s and Mark Sanford’s sex scandals, have brought new attention to the group.

Sharlet’s book, The Family, came out in hardcover last year; the paperback was released in May.

Holds are heavy in many libraries.
