AAS will be going live with American journalist and author, Andrea McKenna Brankin, for her very first book launch event for her new book, Bipolar Phoenix. The book, available on Amazon.com and Kindle, is about Andrea's life with bipolar disorder. It has many twists and turns and a true happy ending. Andrea will do a short reading from the book and AWA Magazine's Tori Nelson will host an interview to find out how the book came about and its impact on the mental health community. We'll also discuss how points in the book apply to the general public even as COVID-19 has put a spotlight on the need for more focused wellness inside and out. The event will end with an audience Q&A as well as big "thank yous" for all the support Andrea has had from the American community in Singapore.
