All shows are now sold out
“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.
Attached is the 2018 Pink Can Letter which reflects current information regarding the activities of the Northern California Hospital and Institution Committee. It is provided to keep local groups informed about how their pink can collections are put to use carrying the message of A.A. to alcoholics who are confined.
Feel free to reproduce and/or distribute the Pink Can Letter to any/all your groups.
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.”
