In this masterful work, Beth Macy, Author takes us into the epicenter of America's twenty-plus year struggle with opioid addiction. From distressed small communities in Central Appalachia to wealthy suburbs; from disparate cities to once-idyllic farm towns; it's a heartbreaking trajectory that illustrates how this national crisis has persisted for so long and become so firmly entrenched. The only book to fully chart the devastating opioid crisis in America: An unforgettable portrait of the families and first responders on the front lines, from a New York Times bestselling author and journalist who has lived through it.

    Clifton Forge, VA 24422

    Jeff Dayton's 15 years as bandleader and guitarist with Glen Campbell were filled with shows, adventures and stories as they traveled and recorded together. Glen remains one of America’s best-loved and most-respected country/pop artists of all time, and it’s only natural that since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis and his recent passing, there would be a renewed demand for his music to be heard. Jeff has been answering that call with Salute to Glen Campbell, on tour now. The show is filled with Glen’s hits, led by his former right-hand man. Dayton occasionally calls on fellow alumni from the tours and together they share the joys and fun, the stories behind the songs and an intimate reflection on the pain of losing an artist who was a great friend to us all. The show has been playing to sellout crowds in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, Minneapolis and San Diego, and this year is adding Oklahoma, South Dakota, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Philadelphia and more.
