Northport Community Book Club
An Evening at the Skate Park
With James Brown
Friday, April 27th, 2012 at 5:00 pm
Veteran’s Memorial Skate Park
Join us for an evening with the Northport Drug and Alcohol Task Force featuring author James Brown.
Community members of ALL ages are encouraged to join us for: food, fun and festivities
James Brown will be the keynote speaker at this event.
Award-winning author James Brown gained a cult following after chronicling his turbulent childhood and spiraling drug addiction in The Los Angeles Diaries. This River picks up where Brown left off in his first memoir, describing his tenuous relationship with sobriety, telling of agonizing relapses, and tracking his attempts to become a better father. This is the heartbreaking and at times uplifting tale of Brown’s battles, peeking into his former life as an addict and detailing his subsequent ascent to sobriety and fight for redemption.
The Northport Community Book Club will be donating two benches to the Veteran’s Memorial Skate Park. In addition, there will be music, skating, raffles and more…..
A suggested donation of $5.00/person would be much appreciated to help support our efforts to create and maintain a drug free community and enable us to continue to sponsor drug/alcohol free community events.
