NAMI Summit County Luncheon

The Recovery Journey 



The National Alliance on Mental Illness Summit County “NAMI Summit County,” will celebrate its 31st year of service to the Summit County community by holding a luncheon at The Hilton Akron/Fairlawn.  

Keynote speaker Marya Hornbacher is an established mental health writer who centers her work around recovery, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders. Her first book, WASTED: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia, earned her a nomination for the Pulitzer Prize in nonfiction. It is published in 18 languages, and over the years has become a classic. Her book, MADNESS: A Bipolar Life, was an immediate New York Times Bestseller, and earned her more praise in the Times, which wrote, “Hornbacher is a virtuoso writer.” 

Born in San Francisco, Hornbacher has recently moved to Philadelphia to join the graduate and undergraduate faculty at Rowan University. She is currently at work on her sixth and seventh books.
