Conversations' Visit With Author Andre Johnson: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

(Sunday, March 14, 2010) Shadow Play Entertainment and Conversations Book Club wish to thank everyone who came out to support author Andre Johnson in his discussion at Appetizers Restaurant in Pearl, MS on Saturday, March 13, 2010.

Though we had been introduced to the Mississippi author some time ago, this was the first time he had spoken to the group about what it has been like for him to live with Bipolar Disorder, the effect it has had on his family and friends, and what he hopes people get from his book YEARNING FOR CONTROL.

Joining the conversation were his beautiful wife and mother who shared their own experiences, even addressing the stigma that some feel when it comes to dealing with the subject of mental illness. One of the points made at the discussion was the importance of having a conversation about the subject and dealing with it directly instead of trying to sweep it under the rug.

Before the night ended, Conversations had the pleasure of being joined by fellow Mississippi author Rita B. Davis. She will be hosted in her own discussion at Appetizers on Sat. April 3, 2010 to discus her book OVERWHELMED.

Look for Conversations Book Club President Cyrus Webb and author Andre Johnson to hold a special discussion in April 2010 about those affected directly and indirectly with mental illness.
