‘Distilled Spirits’ author visits bookstore

By From page A6 | October 05, 2012

Don Lattin, author of “Distilled Spirits: Getting High, Then Sober, With a Famous Writer, A Forgotten Philosopher and a Hopeless Drunk,” will present his book at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12, at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis.

The longtime religion reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, Lattin is the author of the bestselling book “The Harvard Psychedelic Club” and “Jesus Freaks,” both published by Harper One. “Distilled Spirits” blends his own memoir and tale of recovery with the stories of writer Aldous Huxley, philosopher Gerald Heard and Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson. Each helped transform the landscape of Western religion and spirituality in the 20th century.
