The Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County will be having a fundraising concert Saturday night at Viewpoint Books in Columbus. Organizers are calling it a “Book Cellar Benefit,” featuring Josh Morningstar, a former addict and inmate, father and troubadour. Morningstar says that it’s important for him to perform at this event. He explains what you can expect to hear…

Mornigstar says that he was a heroin addict for five years after getting started on pain pills. He says that he’s been in recovery for six years and that he’s thankful to have survived and to be able to tell his story in the hopes of helping others.

Saturday night’s show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and may be purchased at Viewpoint Books, located at the corner of Washington and Sixth Streets in downtown Columbus. Only 100 seats are being offered for the event. If seats are still available Saturday, they will be $20 at the door, with all proceeds going to support ASAP.
