Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Book Soup welcomes psychiatrist and author Gary Small as he discusses and signs his book The Naked Lady Who Stood on Her Head: A Psychiatrist’s Stories of His Most Bizarre Cases. It’s an inside look at some of his more interesting cases, including patients who did naked headstands, suffered from hysterical blindness to fainting schoolgirls and self-amputations. We don’t know how he got around the patient-confidentiality thing, but it sounds like an interesting read. 7 pm.
