Sharon Leder, author of The Fix: A Father’s Secrets, A Daughter’s Search, has used proceeds from her novel to establish Creative Outlets: Finding Your Voice Through ARTS! at the Cape Cod Museum of Art in Dennis, Mass.
The free program for youth ages 12-16 is offered Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. beginning April 15. Leder, who lost her father to his heroin addiction when she was a teen herself, is driven to help other young people affected by addiction.
“My writing helped me overcome the stigma of my father’s overdose death,” says Leder, a finalist for a Benjamin Franklin Award in the Best New Voice, Fiction category. “I want young people with stresses to know that words, and all the arts, can help them pull through difficult life challenges.”
