R.E.A.D. Book Group for March

On Thursday, March 3 at 10:00 a.m. Eloise Fugal will review Driven: An Autobiography by Larry H. Miller and Doug Robinson at the library for the R.E.A.D. Book Group. Everyone is invited to attend.

When he was sixteen years old, Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his possessions sitting in three bags on the porch of his darkened house. The door was locked. From those troubled and humble beginnings rose a man whose influence has touched, according to reliable pollsters, more than 99 percent of the population of Utah as well as myriads of people worldwide. Seven months before Miller passed away, he began working with Doug Robinson on this biography. Written in first person, the book talks about the many facets of Larry's life and legacy and speaks candidly about the people and experiences that influenced him. It doesn't just tell Larry Millers story, it shares painful lessons as well as joyful lessons he learned from his many experiences. 

This fascinating and inspiring autobiography includes a moving foreword by Utah Jazz great John Stockton, 

an epilogue written by Gail Miller, Larry s wife, and numerous photographs.

It gives a firsthand look at the incredible breadth of Larry Miller's work and contributions in business, in sports, in the arts, in his support of the Joseph Smith Papers Project, as well as his personal humanitarian service.  It has a full section addressing the question Larry was most often asked: How did you do it? 

We hope you will plan to join us for the book review and discussion about this interesting man.
