On Monday, June 22nd we welcomed Tony Ortega, a former editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, and Paulette Cooper, the subject of Tony’s new book The Unbreakable Miss Lovely which documented Paulette’s struggles with Scientology.

We had over 90 people in attendance and only a limited number of Tony’s books – which sold out quickly. This CFI Canada event was held at Northern District Library.



The Unbreakable Miss Lovely was the code name Scientology spies gave Paulette Cooper in their internal documents. In 1971 Paulette Cooper wrote a scathing book about the Church of Scientology. Desperate to shut the book down, Scientology unleashed on her one of the most sinister personal campaigns the free world has ever known.

The onslaught, which lasted years, drove her to the brink of suicide. The story of Paulette’s terrifying ordeal is told in full for the first time in The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, published by Silvertail Books in London. It reveals the shocking details of the darkest chapter in Scientology’s checkered history, which ended with senior members in prison, and the organization’s reputation permanently damaged.
