Talking about Women and Our Relationship to Alcohol featuring Drink, a memoir on Alcohol Use by Ann Dowsett-Johnson, 4/20/23 @ Reading Public Library, 64 Middlesex Avenue. Check out a copy of Ann's book and come on 4/20 to participate in an important conversation about women and alcohol. A quote from Ann on her book "I grew up in a world where people kept secrets: it was taboo to talk about my mother’s problematic drinking. When I first discovered I too had a problem with drinking, I turned to memoirs to find my way forward. When I found recovery, my one wish was to write a book for all the women still struggling, numbing with alcohol. Writing Drink was one of the happiest experiences of my life, and when the book was finished, I knew I had broken the taboo."
Postpartum & Perinatal Mental Health Presentation, 4/27/23 @ the Reading Public Library from 7-8:30pm, sponsored by Reading Coalition.
