Stirring memoir to be featured at one of the region’s prestigious book fairs

From author De An Simmons comes The Brewers' Brew that Overflowed, an inspiring story of a family who lived in distressful times, but overcame it nonetheless.

Spanning a whole decade, The Brewers' Brew that Overflowed is an autobiography about trials and tragedies that a family experienced from 1960-1970—and how they survived through all of these. One of the obstacles they met is Bipolar disorder, a mentally challenging condition leading to an effect similar to a split personality, which was unknown during that time. No one discussed what effect it had on individuals. Unfortunately, no medication was mentioned to control it. However, despite the constraints, this family was able to go through the hardships.

The author believes that life is, sometimes, like a hot drink: the brew may sometimes overflow, but it is never too late to clean up the mess. A noteworthy autobiography, The Brewers' Brew that Overflowed is advisable for audiences who have family problems, those in the medical field, and for all who live with inherited mental depression such as bipolar disorder.

This book will be featured at this year’s New York State reading Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, New York, on April 3 to 5, 2011. For more information on this book, log on to
