Two WellRead attendees sit side-by-side | September 13, 2023

Mark your calendars! WellStone’s quarterly book club meets again in January.

WellRead The Book Club uses highly rated books to launch real conversations about mental illness and addiction, exploring the powerful topics that shift, and sometimes shake, our lives. 

Join us for an evening of warmth, connection, and learning at the Southeast Huntsville YMCA on Tues., Jan. 23 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. WellRead is a free event open to the community. However, registration is required, and capacity is limited.

Order your book now! In light of the recent passing of Friends actor and addiction recovery advocate Matthew Perry, we’ll be reading and discussing his memoir “Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing,” which has made multiple appearances on the Amazon bestsellers list. You can purchase it at The Snail on the Wall’s Holiday Bookstore at Constitution Hall Park, or order online here for local delivery. Beat the holiday shopping rush, and grab your copy today! Note: Reading the selected work beforehand is encouraged, but not required.

Our first WellRead event in September was a huge success, shaped by guided questions, honest reflections, and sincere connections between readers. View photos here.

WellRead The Book Club provides space for stigma-ending conversation around the topics that affect all of us, in one way or another. Together, we can turn a new page on mental illness and addiction in our community.

Register today—and start reading!
