The youngest of 21 children, Sarah Frey knows what it means to struggle both professionally and personally. And because of her hard work, courage, and entrepreneurial spirit, she also knows what it means to succeed as the head of a multi-state farming phenomenon.

Dubbed “The Pumpkin Queen” by The New York Times, Sarah is the largest grower of pumpkins in the United States. Through heartwarming and heart-wrenching personal stories, Sarah explains how she saved her family’s farm from ruin in her memoir, which is also being made into a television series.

Join us as we read and discuss Sarah’s memoir, The Growing Season: How I Built a New Life – and Saved an American Farm, for this month’s #IWFReads Book Club on June 24 at 1:00 pm ET.

Her tales are an eye-opening account of survival in a quest to thrive. Through hunting, gambling, and help from kind souls, Sarah documents a real life rags-to-riches story that will leave you wondering what’s next.

From starting a small melon route before she could legally drive so her family would have enough money to pay the mortgage—to walking into Walmart and becoming one of the largest distributors of its melons—Sarah shares inspirational advice on life, love, and business.
