as reported on a Toronto news channel, Robert MUnsch who suffered a stroke in 2008 and went public about tratment he was having for addiction in 2010, will make an increrasingly rare public appearance (for reasons made apparent in the full report) this Sunday:
Beloved children’s author Robert Munsch says he has no regrets about going public with his addiction issues nearly four years ago, and still attends support meetings almost daily.
“Four or five days a week I go to the morning narcotics anonymous meeting, because I’m an addict and I don’t want to be an active addict,” the bestselling author of “Love You Forever” and “The Paper Bag Princess” said in an interview Thursday.
“In the afternoons I write and walk my dog. I walk my dog out of town, off the leash, we go through woods, it’s crazy.”
Munsch, who will join other authors at the Ontario Science Centre for Family Literacy Day on Sunday, made headlines in May 2010 after admitting in a TV interview that he was four months clean from a long cocaine and alcohol addiction.
