David Sheff Author Talk @ Horace Mann Middle School

Primary tabs

Join best-selling author David Sheff for a candid conversation around addiction, recovery and sobriety.

The free event, which is open to the public, also includes a book signing presented by Book Heads in Plymouth and a resource fair with local agencies and community groups. The event will take place at 6:30 p.m., on Wednesday, April 22, at Horace Mann Middle School.

David is the author of the best-selling book “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction,” which was adapted into a film starring Steve Carrell. The book recounts his son Nic’s struggles with addiction and bipolar disorder, which was later chronicled in Nic’s best-selling memoir “Tweak: Growing up on Methamphetamines.” 

Nic will also be in Sheboygan to talk with middle school students, teachers, counselors and parents at 9:30 a.m. on April 22 at South High School.

The events are aimed at putting a human face on our nation’s substance abuse epidemic, encouraging those who struggle to embrace help and bringing hope to all who are touched by it.

The events are sponsored by the Mead Public Library Foundation and the Sheboygan Public Education Foundation.
