Tomorrow: The Fix Hosts David Sheff in Newport Beach

By The Fix staff 05/08/13

RSPV here to attend a reading, discussion and book-signing with the acclaimed author of Clean and Beautiful Boy.

Join David Sheff on May 9!

The Fix is proudly hosting an exclusive and exciting event next week: a reading, discussion and book-signing with David Sheff, concerning his important new book Clean: Overcoming Addiction and Ending America's Greatest Tragedy. It will take place on Thursday, May 9, from 7–9 pm, at the Regency Historic Lido Theatre in Newport Beach, California. 

Fix readers are likely to know about the author already: His first book, Beautiful Boy, an account of his efforts to save his son, Nic Sheff, from an addiction to meth, was a #1 New York Times bestseller. (Regular Fix readers will also be familiar with Nic, who in sobriety has been a regular contributor to our site.)

In Beautiful Boy, Sheff Sr.—a leading figure in the addiction and recovery world, who has appeared in Time magazine's annual list of the world's 100 most influential people—unforgettably related one family's harrowing struggle. In Clean, he applies extensive research and reporting to the whole country, looking critically at what is being done badly and well in US addiction treatment and policy today.

Space for this free event is limited! RSVP now by email to: [email protected].
