The Book: The Story of Red Tail Hawk

September 9, 2024

4pm to 6pm

Katie Morini, author, nurse, long time Plymouth resident, and co-founder of Plymouth’s first and only Recovery Center, will share the true story of the life she shared with her family as they managed the maze of addiction.  Katie’s sister Amanda “Beth” suffered and died of substance use disorder (SUD) at 29 years old, after a 10 year struggle. The book tells their story through the author’s childhood memories and the beautiful poems that Beth left behind.  It is a hauntingly heartbreaking collaboration, yet inspiring account, of a family that turned their grief and love into hope for those that struggle.
