Author Event with Sarah Hepola
Meet New York Times bestselling author Sarah Hepola at your Dallas Flagship Half Price Books on Friday, January 24th at 7 p.m.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Sarah Hepola is the author of the New York Times bestseller, Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget. Her writing has appeared in Texas Monthly, Elle, Glamour, The Guardian, the New York Times magazine, D Magazine, and Salon, where she was a longtime editor. She is currently writing a memoir about an ambivalent single-hood called Unattached.

ABOUT BLACKOUT
For Sarah Hepola, alcohol was "the gasoline of all adventure." She spent her evenings at cocktail parties and dark bars where she proudly stayed till last call. Drinking felt like freedom, part of her birthright as a strong, enlightened twenty-first-century woman.

But there was a price. She often blacked out, waking up with a blank space where four hours should be. Mornings became detective work on her own life. What did I say last night? How did I meet that guy? She apologized for things she couldn't remember doing, as though she were cleaning up after an evil twin. Publicly, she covered her shame with self-deprecating jokes, and her career flourished, but as the blackouts accumulated, she could no longer avoid a sinking truth. The fuel she thought she needed was draining her spirit instead.

A memoir of unblinking honesty and poignant, laugh-out-loud humor, BLACKOUT is the story of a woman stumbling into a new kind of adventure--the sober life she never wanted. Shining a light into her blackouts, she discovers the person she buried, as well as the confidence, intimacy, and creativity she once believed came only from a bottle. Her tale will resonate with anyone who has been forced to reinvent or struggled in the face of necessary change. It's about giving up the thing you cherish most--but getting yourself back in return.
