LRPL Book Club: “Beautiful Boy”
September 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
Join the Lake Region Public Library on Thursday, September 7 at 7 pm to discuss August’s book pick, Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction by David Sheff.
Before Nic Sheff became addicted to crystal meth, he was a charming boy, joyous and funny, a varsity athlete and honor student adored by his two younger siblings. After meth, he was a trembling wraith who lied, stole, and lived on the streets. David Sheff traces the first subtle warning signs: the denial, the 3 A.M. phone calls (is it Nic? the police? the hospital?), the rehabs. His preoccupation with Nic became an addiction in itself, and the obsessive worry and stress took a tremendous toll. Beautiful Boy is a fiercely candid memoir that brings immediacy to the emotional rollercoaster of loving a child who seems beyond help.
