Brenda Wilhelmson/ Diary of an Alcoholic Housewife

 Brenda Wilhelmson brings her rending memoir, Diary of an Alcoholic Housewife, to the Book Cellar! The book details Wilhemson's attempts to achieve sobriety. 


Of the book, she writes: 

 Where it all started...
One of the many nights I left a recovery meeting wondering if I really belonged there, I drove to a bookstore and pulled every drinking-related memoir I could find off the shelves. I didn’t want to read a depraved story about how low a person could go. I wanted verification that someone like me was a drunk and needed to stop drinking. I left the store empty handed and bummed.  As I lay in bed that night, the thought, “Write that book,” flew into my head.
