About the Moderator.
Erin Khar is an author and advocate known for her writing on addiction, recovery, mental health, parenting, and relationships. Erin knows first-hand the challenges of addiction recovery and has established herself as a respected voice in the national conversation about the overdose epidemic.
Erin’s debut memoir, Strung Out, appeared on most anticipated lists from Apple Books, Goodreads, SELF, The Rumpus, Bitch Media, and others. Of the book, The New York Times writes, “With the thrill of an early Bret Easton Ellis novel — except Khar’s characters aren’t nihilists…. Khar’s buoyant writing doesn’t get mired in her dark subject matter. There is an honesty here that can only come from, to put it in the language of 12-step programs, a ‘searching and fearless moral inventory.’ This is a story she needed to tell; and the rest of the country needs to listen.”
She writes the weekly advice column, Ask Erin, on Substack, and her personal essays have appeared in The Times of London Sunday Magazine, SELF, Marie Claire, Salon, HuffPost, Esquire, Cosmopolitan, and others. She lives in New York City.
