(#2269) Felicia G (Laramie, WY)
1990 in Unknown  EVENT: 50th Anniversary Somewhere  TYPE: AA, Female, Story, Historical, Author

Author: Stars Don't Fall

Sober 46 years since Thanksgiving 1943 (11/25/1943), Countess Felicia G was author of the 2nd Edition Big Book story, "Stars Don't Fall" (p.401). It was the longest of any Big Book story, including Bill W's at 17.5 pages.

She was sponsored by Marty M (author "Women Suffer, Too") after being referred to her by Bill W.

She had one slip after that before getting sober that Thanksgiving.

This is a very short talk as she was not expecting to speak.

She died 2/26/1999, nine years after this talk, in a retirement community in Laramie, WY.
