    Saturday, November 17, 2018 - Book Signing

    When: 2:00-5:00

    Where: Barnes & Noble, 1260 Churn Creek Road, Redding, CA. 96003

    What: Talk and signing on First Break


    A very special collaboration between First Break author Jamie Weil, NAMI Redding, and Redding Barnes & Noble to hold a talk from 2-2:30 on insight into First Break’s journey through youth mental health and suicide prevention and how that story will be used to change the conversation. A book signing will be held following that talk from 2:00-5:00.


    At a time when we are expected to be happy and joyful, the holidays are very difficult for so many people, especially those struggling with mental health challenges. This day is perfect to gather because it is just a few days after heroine Paige’s birthday in the novel, and the novel takes place during this Fall/Winter cycle. The resource guide in the back of the book may provide the exact help a loved one needs.
