Meet bestselling Portland author Ruth Wariner

Posted: Updated:

Ruth Wariner's New York Times bestselling memoir, "The Sound of Gravel," is about growing up in a polygamist cult as one of Joel Lebaron's 41 children.

The riveting story is now getting the attention of some movie studios in Hollywood.  

Wariner escaped from Colonia Lebaron in Mexico at the age of 15 with four of her youngest siblings, whom she raised in California and then Oregon. 

Meet Ruth at her book signing at Broadway Books in Portland at 7 pm on Thursday, March 10th.
