FEATURED LITERATURE: Grapevine Daily Quote Book This book captures the first 365 days of the Grapevine Daily Quote, which first appeared in June 2012. The quotes -contributed by AA members, with many written by our co-founders - were selected by the Grapevine staff. All of these passages first appeared in the pages of Grapevine as part of members' stories and other submissions, and many of them can now be found in Grapevines' themed book anthologies. Each daily quote is accompanied by the title of the story it came from, the original issue date and the geographical location of its writer. Listed at the bottom of each page is the Grapevine book in which the quote can also be found. We hope that you will enjoy these passages of experience, strength and hope and bring them into your daily life.
