Hear from Beth Aich, Bill W, Glenn Rader, Jeffery Munn, Marya Hornbacher and Vince Hawkins talking about: 

  • their writing motivations, 
  • their own journey in finding sobriety "without having to accept anyone else's beliefs nor having to deny their own,"
  • fielding audience questions about avoiding pedestals and other's expectations, steps to how secular AA could stop being AA's best kept secret, what their experience was the preceding 12-step literature offerings, Do overs: what would they add to their book if they could.
