For many years, we have been emphasizing the importance of several A.A. General Service Conference-approved Literature publications. These are a vital part in any study of A.A. origins, A.A. history, A.A. founding, A.A.'s Original Akron Program, and subsquent changes.
Pamphlet P-53 is titled "The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches Their Last Major Talks." This pamphlet is often not seen on the literature tables of the many A.A. meetings I attend. But the pamphlet has much important information about A.A. in the words of its Co-founders.
Much of the Bible background, of which Dr. Bob spoke, spilled over into and was expanded in A.A. General Service-Conference Approved "DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers." This too is often not found on literature tables.
At our two conferences in California on September 17 and September 20, much of our focus will be on the early A.A. program and how to apply it today. And it is particularly important to start with several of A.A.'s own pieces, as well as the extensive research on history in the last 30 years.
Please send to me, and/or bring to the conference, as many P-53 Pamphlets as fit within your budget. These will be distributed free at the Conferences.
