One book’s journey

The making of the book Our Great Responsibility: A Selection of Bill W.’s General Service Conference Talks (1951-1970)

Julia D., an editor in the AAWS Publishing Department (as well as long-time AA member), spent the better part of the past two years working on the latest AA book, Our Great Responsibility: A Selection of Bill W.’s General Service Conference Talks 1951-1970. Here is her story of the journey of the book… 

In the fall of 2016, I started work as a freelance project manager on Our Great Responsibility. At that time, work on the book—then called Unity in Action—was well underway. The talks were already transcribed and beginning to be organized into a book format. The history and preface chapters were just being written.
