Dick B. on the Importance to A.A. History of Dr. Bob's Birthplace, Church, and Academy in St. Johnsbury Vermont

Faces and Voices of Recovery some time ago featured an interview of Author and A.A. Historian Dick B. when he and his son were in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. They were interviewed in the boyhood home and birthplace of A.A. cofounder Dr. Bob Smith on Summer Street in St. Johnsbury.
