March 15, 2017 GMT

GREENWICH — In efforts to open discussion on drug and alcohol addiction, JCC is hosting a book talk for author Lisa Smith to share her story.

Publishers Weekly reviewed Smith’s book, “Girl Walks Out of a Bar,” stating it was a “gripping memoir,” and that “her riveting story will inspire both those who have been there and those who have not.”

In a time where drug addiction is like an epidemic, Smith is passionate about breaking the stigma associated it, and has now been sober for 10 years.

At 10a.m. on March 29, Smith will speak at the Greenwich YWCA about how her teenage drug and alcohol use became a part of her adult life as a lawyer in New York City.


The event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Book Council, Jewish Family Services of Greenwich, Liberation Programs, the YWCA and UJA Greenwich.
