On Monday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m., the Clinton Book Shop will host baseball great, Darryl Strawberry for a discussion and book signing. Darryl will present his new book, Don’t Give Up On Me: Shedding Light On Addiction With Darryl Strawberry.
In his book, Strawberry weaves a story of childhood abuse, anxiety, drug and alcohol addiction with easy-to-understand explanations of addiction from trained professionals.
Presented through the the eyes of a psychoanalyst, licensed social worker, and addiction specialist, this book offers hope and a path to healing.
By shedding the light on addiction, “Don’t Give Up On Me” speaks to all people, from those who are still trapped in the depths of addiction to those who are currently in recovery, to caregivers, parents, friends, and therapists.
This book also stresses the importance of good parenting and discusses the impact of low self-esteem, low self-worth, bullying, as well as emotional and physical pain and how the seeds of substance abuse are planted at an early age.
Whether the addiction is to alcohol, heroin or other opiates, gambling, food, or sex, this book shares the hard truths and hopeful messages for anyone impacted by this deadly dilemma.
Tickets for this event are $25, and includes a copy of the book. The Clinton Book Shop is located at 12 E. Main Street in Clinton. Tickets can be obtained by calling 908-735-8811 or by stopping by the book shop.
