60th anniversary of the Little White Book (LWB)


This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Little White Book (LWB). Did you know that over the past 20 years, communities have been publishing local stories in the LWB, in accordance with the policy described in A Guide to World Services in NA? In addition to the eight stories in the English-language version, 85 more stories are published or forthcoming in 13 other language versions of the LWB. To celebrate the Little White Book’s diamond jubilee, we intend to collect all 93 of these stories in one special edition Little White Book.

The Fellowship Intellectual Property Trust allows the World Board to bundle, excerpt, and/or repackage NA literature as long as 120-day notice is provided. We have posted such a notice titled “June 2021 Notice for LWB” at www.na.org/fipt. Check it out, and while you are there, watch the FIPT video if you haven’t already.

Also, don’t forget that the last batch of review and input material for the Spiritual Principle a Day Project has been posted to www.na.org/spad. It’s taken a lot of hard work with the staff furloughs and the inability to meet in person for more than a year, but we are still on target to publish the approval draft in the 2022 Conference Agenda Report.

Unity Day this year will be 4 September. Flyers have been posted in English, Portuguese, and Spanish at www.na.org/nawsevents.

As always, let us know if you have any questions: wb@na.org

Yours in service,

World Board
