Reading & Book Signing
In 2006, "To Write Love on Her Arms," Jamie Tworkowski's story about helping his friend Renee through her struggle with drug addiction, depression, and self-injury went viral. Soon after, Tworkowski left his job to found a nonprofit dedicated to offering hope and help to others like Renee. In his debut book, Tworkowski invites readers into his thoughts and experiences over the last ten years through a collection of blog posts, essays, and intimate stories that give a voice to those who are often silent and open up a dialogue about the struggles we all face, the hope we all have, and the help and support all around us. Joining us for a reading and signing, Tworkowski will share his honest and inspiring story.
Jamie Tworkowski is the founder of To Write Love on Her Arms, a nonprofit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and thoughts of suicide. TWLOHA has one of the largest online audiences of any non-profit, and Jamie has been interviewed by NBC Nightly News, CBS's Sunday Morning, and Rolling Stone magazine, among others. He is the only nonmusician to win an MTVU Woodie Award. Jamie speaks frequently, telling the TWLOHA story and encouraging audiences at universities, concerts, and music festivals. A proud uncle, Jamie lives in Melbourne Beach, Florida, and loves surfing, music, and basketball.
