I just read about Leah when she first did TRs.

That's something I would want to ask her about to compare notes, so to speak.

That's something that most never-been-in broadcasters wouldn't even think of asking her about.

I would also like to talk about her going out and handing out promotional things and did she body route? Maybe I haven't got that far yet.

I really like her book but I can only take it in small bits at a time.

I think this book is great, but I am not enjoying reading it.

Leah went through some really tough experiences that young women of that age should never experience.
Reading about those things upsets me. At the same time I am thankful to her for telling about them.

I googled " Leah Remini book tour dates"
and found a link that might show her upcoming appearances but this intermediate lnk warned of a potential virus: https://www.google.com/interstitial?url ... k-signing/

Does anyone have her upcoming book tour dates and places?

She has active Facebook & Twitter accounts, but nothing on either about a book tour.

She may not be touring at all. The book is doing fine on its own based on media appearances. When you can get a whole hour of 20/20, why do you need to appear at a Barnes & Noble in Poughkipsee?

I just read the part about Leah getting her first sitcom. The course supervisor required her to make up her time on her Scientology courses.
In Scientology everyone is a statistic resource, even celebrities. Leah, if you read this, aren't you glad you're out?

I know what you mean. I'm 10% through it. I don't care about the book's non-Sci parts but just the very beginning was as good as Jenna Miscavige's if you want to see just HOW families get sucked into this. For Leah a cult was better than going back to an abusive father who put her down all day. "At least they were treating me like an adult." (To better exploit her).

But to take a child out to sea and dump her in the ocean (overboarding as per LRH) for not calling people "Sir?"

Absolutely criminal. And they totally got away with it yet again.
