book signing author presentation

Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round; An Alcoholic Family in Crisis (about losing my husband), its sequel, Please God, Not Two; This Killer Called Alcoholism (about losing my daughter) and the Narrative Non-Fiction, written by 34 alcoholic and drug uses, as the conclusion to the mindset of the addicted, What is and isn’t Working for the Alcoholic and Addict: In Their Own Words.

Reason: There will be a small introduction to each book and how they follow each other. The rest of my time will be spent talking on “The Effect of Alcoholism on the Whole Family” from my experience of losing two loved ones from this disease.

Presentation
I will bring you behind closed doors of a family’s private life of hardships and struggles with alcohol abuse. You will hear the reality of the the constant confusion, disappointments, broken promises and fear of physical and emotional abuse.

From losing a husband and daughter to this horrible, worldwide disease, I will talk of ways to make healthy decisions for yourself and those towards the alcoholic.

You will hear a few stories from 34 alcoholic and drug uses who contributed their life stories to my book What is and isn’t Working for the Alcoholic and Addict, to help you understand their mindset with going into recovery. What do they need and want from us for help? I will also give a small talk that I present to the substance abusers in halfway homes, court-ordered programs and rehabilitation centers.

Ms. Sequeira is a four-time award winning author who will be speaking about “the Effect of Alcoholism on the Whole Family.” She also offers a private talk to just the alcoholics and addicts. Alcoholism is a family disease and Alberta will show how our enabling only drives the alcoholic deeper into their addiction. She talks about how she lived in fear, confusion and abuse during her married years to Richard Lopes of North Dighton, MA and his death in 1985 at the VA Hospital in Providence, RI at forty-five years of age from his alcohol abuse. Tragedy followed when their daughter, Lori Cahill of North Dighton, traveled down the same path. Lori died in 2006 at the age of thirty-nine at the Charlton Memorial Hospital in Fall River from the same disease. Alberta wrote about her life in her memoirs Someone Stop This Merry-Go-Round; An Alcoholic Family in Crisis and its sequel Please, God, Not Two; This Killer Called Alcoholism.
