The Bookshop West Portal hosted a reading and meet-and-greet with Kevin Hines to discuss his new memoir, "Cracked... Not Broken: Surviving and Thriving After a Suicide Attempt".

Kevin has spoken to over three hundred thousand people about his firsthand experience with suicidal thoughts and his eventual attempted suicide. He is one of 33 Golden Gate Bridge jump survivors. Less than 2% of those people who have survived the jump, have regained full mobility as Kevin has.

Kevin actively spreads the message of living mentally well and the prevention of suicide. Hines is a powerful, honest, and intimate presenter, and has been featured in the critically acclaimed film “The Bridge,” by innovative film maker Eric Steel, on Larry King Live with Mr. King, 20/20, Anderson Cooper 360 with Sanjay Gupta, Good Morning America with Charlie Rose, and Irelands famed Tonight with Vincent Brown. He has also been featured in hundreds of National and International print, radio, film, and television media outlets and has written several articles about the prevention of suicide and mental health in America.
