Meet the Author: Alison Beard

January 5th at 5pm

beard Quit or Die Trying by Alison Beard isn’t a self-help book about giving up smoking—it’s a candid, irreverent, eye-opening story about one woman’s struggle to overcome her tobacco addiction. When it comes to cigarettes Alison has quit, and quit, and quit again. Now she shares her experience to inspire and help others truly understand the struggle involved in addiction.

Books will be on sale and the author will sign copies. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the library.
