Authors of Bipolar Disorder Book To Offer Talk And Book Signing

On Wed., Feb. 24, the Depression And Bipolar Support Alliance

(DBSA) plans to feature at its monthly meeting Wendy Williamson and Honora (Nora) Rose, co-authors of a best-selling book: “Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder.”  They will tell of their amazing personal journeys and will answer all questions from the audience


Williamson was diagnosed with bipolar disorder eight weeks before graduating from Virginia Tech.  After being downsized from corporate America, Williamson wrote her first book entitled “I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar.” She now writes for The Huffington Post and other venues. She has been interviewed on more than 40 radio stations world-wide.


Rose graduated from Boston University. She worked in the financial field for ten years before starting a family, now ages 13 and 16.  Not long after the birth of her second child she was diagnosed with Bipolar type I at age 35 — her years of meteoric highs and crushing lows finally had a name and her journey to wellness began.  She is an author, editor, advocate and she has been a guest on radio shows across the globe.


Both authors co-founded The Red Bank Writer’s Group. There will be a book signing after the program.  Books will be available at the meeting for a discount or can be ordered


Come early and pick up free literature or borrow from the free lending library of CD’s and DVD’s.  Doors open at 7 p.m.


These educational meetings of the organization take place on the last Wed. every month at 7:45 p.m. using the facilities of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship in Morristown.  The public is cordially invited to attend all meetings; a nominal donation is requested from non-members, when possible.
