Youth Book Discussion
June 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
Adults and youth aged 12 to 17 are invited to discuss the book, “#OneChoice: How Ten Seconds Can Change Your Life”, by Nick and Jack Savage, as told by their mother Becky Savage.
Get your free book by calling (860) 390-1391, then join the discussion to be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2022, from 6:00 to 8:00 P. M. at Simsbury Public Library, 725 Hopmeadow St., Simsbury.
Nick and Jack Savage both passed away at a graduation party in June 2015 after mixing alcohol with opioids. They were just 19 and 18 years old, respectively, Nick having just completed his freshman year in college, and Jack having just graduated from high school. Their mother, Becky, is a substance use prevention specialist, and has been a registered nurse for over 30 years. She wrote the book in the voices of her two eldest sons, and founded The 525 Foundation after their deaths, to educate teens and families and raise awareness about the dangers of alcohol and prescription drug misuse and abuse.
This is an important book for teens and families to read to understand that this can happen to ANYONE. Neither Nick nor Jack were known substance users. Their parents had always talked to them about the dangers of misusing substances. These were good boys who came from a great family, and no one would have ever imagined that this would happen to them…until it did. One choice, one tragic mistake ended their lives and forever changed the lives of their loved ones.
