Ruth Wariner reads an excerpt from "The Sound of Gravel," backed by an original Storybound remix with Shook Twins, and sound design and arrangement by Jude Brewer. Ruth Wariner is an internationally renowned speaker and author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, "The Sound of Gravel". At the age of fifteen, Ruth escaped Colonia LeBaron, the polygamist Mormon colony where she grew up, and moved to California. She raised her three youngest sisters in California and Oregon. After earning her GED, she put herself through college and graduate school, eventually becoming a high school Spanish teacher. She remains close to her siblings and is happily married. "The Sound of Gravel" is her first book. Shook Twins is a Portland-based folk group featuring twins Katelyn and Laurie Shook. Mixing traditional folk instruments like mandolin and banjo with looping machines and beatboxing, Shook Twins pays homage to folk's roots, while creating an entirely new sound.
