Author Lisa Anderson & Dawn Farm Staff Discuss Alcoholism And Lisa’s Book “The Lost Chapters”

Wednesday April 23, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event will be recorded

Join us for an intimate evening as local author Lisa Anderson and staff from Dawn Farm discuss alcoholism and the effect on families.

Lisa is the author of the book The Lost Chapters: A Daughter's Hard Questions About An Ad Man's "Unexpected" Death, the truth about her late father, a New York ad man. The event includes a book signing and books will be for sale.

Lisa Anderson grew up in New York City and graduated from U-M with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology and a Master’s degree in Public Health. Professionally she develops research training programs for early career researchers in the health sciences. "The Lost Chapters," is her first book and invites others seeking the truth about a loss to go the distance.

"Healing comes in getting the story right," the author says. "The Lost Chapters explores class, love, and the legacy of addiction, and delivers a hopeful rendering of a difficult journey."
