An author-speak on the book, High: Everything You Want to Know about Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction with co-authors David and Nic Sheff will be held at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center in Brookfield. The Sheffs will discuss addiction prevention and their story of the dangers of addiction and its effects on family.
Together their memoirs were the source material for the acclaimed film Beautiful Boy, starring Steve Carrell and Timothée Chalamet. The film has won awards at four festivals, including the Founder's Award at the Chicago International Film Festival. David, author of Beautiful Boy, and Nic, author of Tweak, have written the ultimate resource for learning about the realities of drugs and alcohol for middle grade readers.
While children are welcome at this event, the talk will be targeted to parents, educators, and mental health professionals.
This event is cosponsored by Your Choice, offering alcohol and drug prevention education, intervention, and support, and REDgen, promoting balance and resiliency in the lives of children and teens. Cosponsor Boswell Book Company will be selling copies of High and other books written by the Sheffs.
