In conversation with Sharon Friedman
Girl Walks Out of a Bar
Ticket Price: $18 without book, $30 including book
Lisa Smith’s moving memoir, is the story of the smart girl who hid her inner shame and insecurity in a bottle of merlot while behind her desk in an expensive black pantsuit, and no one knew. Smith is a deft storyteller who can simultaneously reveal the tragedy, humor and absurdity inherent in the life of an addict. Her compelling story of self-destruction and redemption is unique in that she never missed a day of work or a deadline. Yet her chronicle is no less harrowing or absorbing than those of the great addiction memoirs.
