Readings on Recovery

I recently organized an event called Readings on Recovery. Six New Yorkers read personal essays with topics ranging from substance abuse to motherhood to eating disorders to dysfunctional relationships. The overarching theme of this gathering was to show the world that we’re all recovering from something – whether we identify as an addict or not.

The next Readings on Recovery is February 11th from 3-6. The featured reader will be Ruby Warrington, author of Material Girl, Mystical World, creator of The Numinous, and co-creator of Club SÖDA NYC and Moon Club. Stay tuned for more details.
