Indigo Road founder and Charleston restaurateur Steve Palmer will discuss his new memoir, Say Grace: How the Restaurant Business Saved My life
at Blue Bicycle Books
next Wed. Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. Kate Daniel of Bar Mash will be onsite serving spirit-free drinks.
Palmer's gripping debut memoir takes an unadulterated look at the world of addiction, from the bottom of the bottle to the long, hard road to sobriety.
, "I was tired. I was sick. As they say in the recovery community, I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. Still believing in my own inevitable doom, I didn't really think rehab would work. I had already been twice before. But nothing else was working either. Moderation had failed. Making promises to myself had failed. Trying to stick to drinking only on weekends or just smoking pot had failed. I had tried everything, and nothing had worked. Maybe this wouldn't work either, but what was there to lose?"
