This is a book of awesome reportage, but at its heart, it is a story about families and individuals who are fighting, loving, using, and losing, in the midst of the opioid epidemic. Join us as we discuss Macy’s introduction to Tess Henry, a young mother and poet, and hear a first-person account of addiction and recovery from a local community member.
Many professionals encounter challenges related to substance misuse in the course of their work. Join us for the opportunity to hear the perspective of local professionals on the effects of opioid use in our community.
One of the themes of Beth Macy’s Dopesick is shattering the silence and shame around addiction by speaking up. Hear personal stories about the effects of opioid misuse in our community and have the opportunity to share your own.
A limited number of Dopesick books are available at the Ashe Arts Center for Read/Share/Discuss, free of charge. Call 336-846-2787 to get yours or visit the Ashe Arts Center.
