A Message from the New Literature Coordinator

Hi Ontario South,
As the new Literature Coordinator in Ontario South, my role is to: “Act as a resource for their Area on Conference Approved Literature”, so feel free to reach out and invite me to your next District meeting! We can discuss ideas for your group/district about:

– Why and how to purchase Conference Approved Literature (CAL) from Ontario South’s Literature Distribution Centre, including supporting your group librarian;

– Ideas for Group and District Literature workshops (in-person, on-line, 1/2 day, full day);

– Ideas for Literature Outreach in which groups and districts can order copies of the pamphlet Al-Anon Faces Alcoholism to distribute in their community (Libraries, doctor’s offices, community centers, police, fire and ambulance stations, etc.) (English) (Spanish) (French);

 – How each of us can contribute to creating Conference Approved Literature;

I look forward to hearing how I can support the use of Conference Approved Literature at your Al-Anon Family Group and District.

Sue M. Literature Coordinator Ontario South

Literature Highlights

One of our recent additions to literature is the “Intimacy in Alcoholic Relationships” book (B-33) which came out in 2018. It is very popular and can be pivotal in our journey towards self-understanding and personal growth while living in the world with all of its variety of people and relationships.

Another relatively new piece of literature is the “Just for Tonight” bookmark (M 81), which is sold in packets of 10. This item has brought much peace & serenity for members to settle their minds at night when they are spinning with worry or fear (obsession)

Order forms

To order any of these items along with the rest of our literature please browse to our main Literature page.

Invite your Literature Coordinator to your group!

Please consider inviting your Literature Coordinator to your Al-Anon days and other (online or face-to-face, when relevant) events to organise a display of literature or a workshop or other activity.
