Fix readers and staff gathered with addiction experts and advocates for a memorable event with author David Sheff in Newport Beach.
Last Thursday, The Fix hosted Beautiful Boy and Clean author David Sheff at the Lido Theatre in Newport Beach, for a talk by Sheff, a conversation with Recovery Media LLC Chairman Paul McCulley and a book-signing.
Hundreds of Fix readers, people in recovery and addiction treatment-industry professionals arrived at the Lido Theater in Newport Beach.
The event also included a showing of a new theatrical trailer for the forthcoming Greg Williams documentary The Anonymous People.
At an earlier VIP event, Fix Editor-in-Chief Will Godfrey interviewed Sheff for a feature story published today.
Sheff chatted with and signed copies of Clean for Dr. Carlos X. Montano; his father, Dr. Carlos Montano; and Terry Montano, the elder Montano's wife.
