Lee Larson graciously invited us to read at the State House as part of Recovery Day. The event was fantastic, and included recognition of some of the biggest contributors to the Vermont recovery movement, including Lee, who received a lifetime achievement award for her many years of work. We also heard updates on issues such as housing for those in recovery, a proclamation from Governor Scott, live music, and more.
Six members of WFR read their own work, and Bess and Gary read work from three other WFR participants. The Burlington, Barre, and St. Johnsbury groups were all represented. It's just another way of getting our work out there, sharing our stories, and reducing the stigma of addiction. Great work, everybody!
