Paul Cook is a father, a husband and, most visibly, the morning traffic reporter on KMOV-TV (Channel 4). He is also a recovering drug addict. In his autobiography, Cooked in LA: I Shot for the Stars and Hit Bottom, he writes in depth about his struggle to survive his dependency on alcohol and drugs. However, the book isn't all gloom and doom; some of the anecdotes are funny, and Cook is a recovery success story, offering hope to all who fight addictions. To hear the author read from his work and to get a copy signed, head to Subterranean Books (6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-862-6100 or www.subbooks.com) at 7 p.m. The book costs $24.95, and admission to the author event is free.
