Through the years the resort has brought authors such as Jimmy Carter, Madeleine Albright, Greg Mortenson, Ann Patchett, Kathryn Stockett, and many more. We bring in writers from all walks of life to discuss a variety of issues and create a forum for ideas, inspiration and creativity. This year promises to bring innovative ideas and invigorating conversation.

David Sheff - Saturday, October 25

Clean - Overcoming Addiction and Ending America's Greatest Tragedy

One of the most pervasive issues of our time is the issue of addiction. Often misunderstood and treated as a moral failing rather than as a disease. David Sheff sheds light into the shadows of addiction in his insightful and thought provoking book.

Sheff is the author of the #1 New York Times-bestselling memoir Beautiful Boy, A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction that chronicled his son's struggle with addiction and how it impacted his family. His ongoing research and reporting on the science of addiction earned him a place on Time Magazine's list of the World's Most Influential People.
