NORFOLK, Neb. - Feb. 2, 2014 - PRLog -- Feb. 03, 2014 - Norfolk, Nebraska -- Josh Rivedal—a New York City author, international public speaker, and writer for the Huffington Post—is releasing a second edition of his memoir, The Gospel According to Josh: A 28-Year Gentile Bar Mitzvah, to benefit the Northeast NE Suicide Prevention Coalition (NNESPC). Twenty-five percent of proceeds from the NNESPC edition will be donated to the NNESPC. Donna Wolff, co-chair of the NNESPC wrote a foreword to the book.

The Gospel According to Josh... is Rivedal’s memoir—a comedic and poignant coming of age story based in part on his acclaimed one-man show that has toured across twenty-six U.S. states and two Canadian provinces, and which made an appearance in Norfolk in September 2013.

“What stands out for me about Northeast NE Suicide Prevention Coalition is their dedication and commitment to make this corner of Nebraska a better place,” says author Rivedal. “Donna Wolff and Andres Sandoval are touching the lives of thousands. Through the coalition and with this book I want to tell people who are struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts—it’s cool, it’s okay to need help; people have your back.”

The Gospel According to Josh was recently added to The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's recommended reading list for survivors of suicide loss.

Author Rivedal will be doing promotional events, book signings, and speeches with The Gospel... over the next several months across the US and Canada. The Gospel According to Josh: A 28-Year Gentile Bar Mitzvah NNESPC Edition  is available at Amazon, Chapters, Barnes & Noble, with the ISBN number 978-0-9860338-2-7

Northeast NE Suicide Prevention Coalition is a grassroots organization dedicated to informing and educating Northeast Nebraska communities about suicide prevention, depression, and mental health. The NNESPC is a registered federally registered 501-c-3 charitable organization.
