This is a FREE event and ALL are welcome!
For the month of November, NAMI Bucks County, PA welcomes Mike Schlossberg, who has been a writer since he wrote his first short story in eighth grade, a Star Wars fanfiction piece. While he claims it was terrible, the creative passion followed him into adulthood.
Serving as a State Representative in Pennsylvania, Mike has had the chance to make a difference. The problem closest to his heart is mental health, where he strives to break the stigma surrounding those who suffer from mental illnesses and give them hope. For Mike, this issue is personal, as he has been treated for depression and anxiety related disorders since he was 18. It was this desire to help which drove him to write Redemption, his first novel.
Join us for a discussion on mental health from a legislator’s perspective and hear Mike speak about and read from his novel, Redemption, which is described as “a moving, hopeful tale of personal struggle and unlikely heroism masquerading as an adrenaline-fueled sci-fi action thriller of a novel.”
