GSO is delighted to announce the limited-edition publication of a new book:

A Visual History of Alcoholics Anonymous: An Archival Journey

On sale: February 14, 2021 – “A Valentine’s Day Gift to the Fellowship” - preorder now, details below

Originally developed as the souvenir book for the 2020 International Convention in Detroit, this colorful, gift-sized volume serves as both a lavishly illustrated tour through A.A.’s history and a lively celebration of our Fellowship.

Also included is a highlight on the Virtual 2020 International Convention, a special focus on A.A. in Detroit, and updated coverage of recent digital innovations in A.A. group life.

With a one-time-only print run, A Visual History of Alcoholics Anonymous will be released February 14, 2021.
