talk & booksigning for "Get Up: A 12-step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos"
Monday, November 24 at 7:30 pm
As an atheist with a background in fundamentalism, Bucky Sinister was skeptical of 12-step groups when the time came for him to get sober. He was afraid of losing his artistic abilities and had big problems with the higher power concept. In spite of his hesitations, he stuck with the program and it rewarded him greatly. In "Get Up: A 12-step Guide to Recovery for Misfits, Freaks, and Weirdos," he shares the knowledge he gained on his journey, from being afraid of the 12-step philosophies to embracing them, motivating others to join him in their own efforts to get clean.
Bucky Sinister, is a spoken word artist who performs about 40 times a years at comedy clubs and theaters, primarily on the West Coast, but also around the country. He has published nine chapbooks and three full-length collections of poetry, the most recent being "All Blacked Out & Nowhere to Go." His first full-length CD, "What Happens in Narnia, Stays in Narnia" was released in 2007.
