Escape from mainstream society and delve into a mysterious cult world. Writer and Beacon resident Helen Zuman did this for real in 1999. Right after graduating from Harvard, she hopped on a bus to Zendik Farm in North Carolina. The Zendiks promised she’d find love apart from ‘Deathculture.’ But it wasn’t until years later that Zuman realized she’d joined a cult. That’s when she started crafting her memoir, Mating in Captivity. Read about the manipulation she endured and what it taught her in this unusual, tell-all memoir.
