Author Appearance, Michael Blanchard - Fighting For My Life

  • Homes on Martha's Vineyard 238 Edgartown-Vineyard Haven Rd Edgartown, MA, 02539 United States (map)

Please join us for the debut of Fighting For My Life,  the journey of one man's salvation through photography.   Life had just gone from bad to the very worst. Thirty years of drinking had narrowed his choice to a simple decision between jail and an addiction rehab center.

Michael chose a three-month rehab program; and when he came out, began to dedicate his life to staying sober. This is his story— painful, provocative, and, because he has used photography as one of his mainstays in his efforts to keep from drinking, both beautiful and moving.

For each book purchased, the author will donate $5.00 to the Martha's Vineyard Community Services New Paths Recovery Program.  New Paths Recovery Program is a structured outpatient addiction program for adults who seek alcohol, drug and behavioral addictions recovery and who may also experience co-occurring mental health disorders.
