KNWA Today: Author, Debby Schriver


Tony Alamo was an infamous figure in Northwest Arkansas for his cult culture in the 1970’s & 1980’s in rural Crawford County.

Author, Debby Schriver was able to uncover some of the untold stories from that time in her book, ‘Whispering In The Daylight: The Children of Tony Alamo Ministries and Their Journey To Freedom’.

Schriver’s extensive research-including interviews with Tony Alamo himself, harrowing visits to Alamo compounds, and witnessing gut-wrenching confrontations between freed children and their unreformed parents-tells the story of a closed group whose origins and history are unlikely ever to be definitively unraveled.

Schriver will be at a book signing on Friday at 7:00 at Nightbird Books at 205 W. Dickson Street. Proceeds and sales from the book will go toward victims and survivors of cults.
