“In Our Own Words,” 10th Anniversary Production

February 8 & 9; 15 & 16, 2019
Fridays @ 8:00pm | Saturdays @ 2:00pm & 8:00pm

“In Our Own Words,” an original play, made its debut at our Founders Day event in 2009 and then went on to a packed house at the 2010 International Conference in San Antonio.

The show brings to life the pages of the Big Book, the Twelve & Twelve, the A.A. Grapevine and recordings of the pioneers of Alcoholics Anonymous. With great humor and depth, In Our Own Words retells the stories of our founders in New York, Akron, Cleveland and Los Angeles – as well as the lesser-known struggles of early women, LGBTQ, people of color and young people in A.A.

All shows sold-out during the initial run, so get your tickets now! $15 in advance; $20 at the door.

New Pamphlets Hot Off the Press!

Hot Off the Press

Two new conference-approved pamphlets from A.A.W.S. have just arrived in our bookstore. The God Word is Experience, Strength and Hope from agnostic and atheist members in A.A. and A.A. for Alcoholics with Mental Health Issues – and Their Sponsors – includes stories from twelve members who are coping with serious mental health issues in sobriety.

These two new pamphlets are an example of Bill W’s. declaration that we “… always try to be inclusive rather than exclusive; let us remember that each alcoholic among us is a member of A.A., so long as he or she declares.”

ONE BIG TENT: Grapevine publishes book of secular stories of recovery

One Big Tent is a collection of stories, originally published in Grapevine, which represent the shared experience of secular AA members who have struggled with alcoholism, yet ultimately found a common solution in AA.

Atheists, agnostics, nonbelievers and secular alcoholics have been members of the AA Fellowship since its earliest days, making significant contributions to the development of the program, helping to swing the doors of AA ever-wider.

But finding their path has not always been easy.

In One Big Tent, these members share how they found their place in AA, work the program, do service and sponsor others.
