Best selling Canadian children’s author Robert Munsch says he has no regrets about going public with his addiction problems and he attends support meetings almost daily.
The beloved author behind “Love You Forever” made headlines in May 2010 after admitting in a television interview that he had been clean and sober for four months after battling a lengthy cocaine and alcohol addiction.
Munsch is 68 and lives in Guelph.
He still attends “Narcotics Anonymous” four or five days a week and says he takes Lithium to control his obsessive-compulsive disorder and manic depression.
The author of “The Paper Bag Princess” will appear at the Ontario Science Centre on Sunday for the annual “Family Literacy Day.”
it’s the only public reading he does these days – after a stroke in 2008 made it difficult for him to tell his stories in front of audiences.
