Newburyport, MA (PRWEB) August 24, 2007
On Thursday, September 27, 2007 in the Ballroom of the National Press Club, the Johnson Institute will honor Karen Casey, and five other pioneers of the recovery movement.
The first ever recovery book written specifically for women celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2006. It was Karen Casey's Each Day a New Beginning.
In the early 80s when there was no literature or support specifically for women in recovery, Karen Casey took it upon herself to change all of that. She recognized that the "one size fits all" mentality of yore was not going to help women in recovery. Each Day a New Beginning has sold over 3 million copies, has been translated into a dozen languages, and remains the defining book of the women's recovery movement.
Twenty-five years later, Karen continues to spearhead this important movement for women, publishing over 20 titles for women in recovery. She wrote the only meditation book, the widely popular A Course in Miracles, she is a sought-after lecturer and workshop leader, and was named a finalist for the National MS Society Books for a Better Life Awards with her title, Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow (Conari Press, 2005).
In its fourth year, the America Honors Recovery luncheon recognizes this incredibly inspirational woman who has harnessed the power of her own personal story to help change the lives of so many.
Conari Press is honored to have Karen Casey on its roster of authors.
