On Friday former WCSH6 Weatherman Kevin Mannix will talk about his recently released book, “Weathering Shame,” coauthored with his social worker wife, Linda Rota. His talk will begin at 3:30 p.m. Books will be available for purchase and signing by Mannix.

“Weathering Shame” is a joint autobiography about Mannix and Rota’s individual experiences with shame and stigma throughout their childhood and adult lives. Mannix tells how he struggled to overcome the stigma of being raised by an alcoholic father, and Rota describes her personal journey after her mother’s suicide.

The authors’ goal in writing the book is for readers to embark on their own journey of self-discovery, recovery and awareness. Mannix and Rota’s mission is to lead society farther down a path of reducing shame and stigma.

The Wiscasset Public Library is located at 21 High St. in Wiscasset. For questions call (207) 882-7161.
