WellRead Book Club

Introducing WellRead, a quarterly book club hosted by WellStone, your region's mental healthcare leader. We'll use highly rated books to launch real conversations about mental illness, addiction, suicide loss, and the many powerful topics that shift, and sometimes shake, our lives. 

The book club’s inaugural event will be held at the North Huntsville Public Library on Wednesday, September 13, from 6 to 7:30 pm. Doors open at 5:30 pm.

RSVP by clicking HERE. Registration is required; capacity is limited.  

Order WellRead's first book, Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig, below. (The Snail on the Wall bookstore offers complimentary delivery to local doorsteps.) The memoir is an account of Haig’s mental illness and near suicide attempt, as we highlight the importance of suicide prevention in September, National Suicide Prevention Month. Note: Reading the selected work beforehand is encouraged, but not required.

WellRead provides a forum for thought-provoking, stigma-ending, and hope-creating conversation on topics that affect us all, in one way or another. Kenny Anderson, the City of Huntsville's Director of the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, will serve as moderator.
