“Most people try to sugar coat what happened and make their books a ‘love me more’ and ‘here’s what’s next.’ I’ve had such a big life and I almost died. Recovery has taught me to be honest about it.” —Pat O'Brien, the former CBS Sports, Access Hollywood and Insider broadcaster about his memoir, I’ll Be Right Back After This.
Writers In Treatment, an organization that supports recovery and the arts, is pleased to announce this year’s honoree of the 8th annual Experience, Strength and Hope Award: author and television personality Pat O’Brien. The annual event will take place Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Skirball Cultural Center and will feature special guests including Joe Walsh of the world-renowned band The Eagles.

The Experience, Strength and Hope Award is given in recognition of an individual’s memoir, including their honest journey from addiction to recovery and their dedication and enthusiasm for carrying the message to a society awash in addiction. This year’s honoree is broadcasting legend Pat O’Brien for his tell-all book I’ll Be Right Back After This.

Event tickets are $100 and are available at Brown Paper Tickets.

Believe in the Heart

If you believe within your heart, you'll know. What have you believed that your heart knows is untrue? 

Counting Down February’s Cold

Even at 28 days, February always feels like the longest month. February is to winter what Wednesday is to the workweek: If we can get through February, even snow in April won’t rock us.
