HIGH with David and Nic Sheff
Wednesday, October 16, 2019
A community viewing party at San Geronimo Valley Community Center
David and Nic Sheff will be speaking live at Angelico Hall in San Rafael about their newest book, High: Everything You Want to Know About Drugs, Alcohol, and Addiction. The discussion will be moderated by Michael Krasny, host of Forum, a news and public affairs program on NPR-member radio station, KQED-FM.
David and Nic Sheff have authored several New York Times best selling books on the realities of drug and alcohol use, including Beautiful Boy (2008) and Tweak (2007). The 2018 film, Beautiful Boy, starring Steve Carell and Timothee Chalamet (who was nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Nic), was adapted from both memoirs.
This is an incredible opportunity for local parents and youth to understand the risks of experimenting with drugs and how stress, pressure and confusion can trigger adolescent substance use. The Sheffs will share their experiences as father and son and discuss how addiction entered their lives. Parents and youth will learn about the realities of substance use specific to Marin County and begin a dialogue about its impact.
Due to overwhelming interest and a sold-out venue, we will be live-streaming the event at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center.
