But when Fonny is accused of rape, and Tish discovers she is pregnant, After his imprisonment, Tish finds out she is pregnant.

Hemma, Wild Age, and Michael Richard Klics at Moon Palace3230 Minnehaha Ave • 8pm
Michael Richard Klics lives in a workshop of debatable structural integrity above the 5 freeway in Los Angeles. It is there, or sometimes in the living rooms of friends and family, in front of a 52 inch television monitor, wielding a handheld microphone, he writes songs, often dancing or pacing or talking to himself while life elsewhere goes on as usual, usually. http://www.michaelrichardklics.com Hemma ‘s songs float melodies that characterize American Country music, while sustaining a penchant for the modern touch of synthesized sound. Swedish for ‘at the home of one’s parents’, Hemma practices this craft with deep respect for the authenticity of the homespun song. Having grown up in a musical family, with whom she recorded 10 albums by the age of 15, Hemma is at home in the studio, on stage, on tour, and in song. hemmabooking.wixsite.com/hemma Wild Age, a Minneapolis five piece, began churning out hooky, synth-laced guitar pop in 2015 when songwriter/guitarist McCoy Seitz and longtime friend/multi-instrumentalist Blair Ransom found themselves reunited in their home city. Joined shortly after by guitarist Matt Ahart, drummer/producer August Ogren, and bassist Leng Moua, the group has since released two EPs (2016’s sparse, vibey Two Palms and 2017’s slick, pop-centered Wild Age Goes Crazy) and a number of singles while developing a reputation in the Minneapolis music scene as a formidable live act. http://www.wildagemusic.com

A Magical Story Time @ Boneshaker Books, 2002 23rd Ave S • 11am
It is our mission with this story time to promote children’s books that shine a spotlight on a wide array of racial and cultural identities, genders, orientations, experiences and abilities. We want to create a space that places a special emphasis on promoting self love, empathy and a greater understanding of the strange, magical world we inhabit. There is serious deficit in children’s books that depict protagonists who are a people of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA+ or any combination of the above. That is why Madeline and Sam’s Magical Story Time seeks out books that do just that. Positive representation in books is crucial to a child’s development of a positive self image. It can be absolutely life affirming for a child to see a protagonist who reflects them accomplishing anything they set their mind to. It is also crucial in developing empathy for a child to experience diversity at a young age. This story time will not only be educational, but spectacularly fun! Before each reading we will have one minute wiggle parties and coloring pages that correlate with that weeks books. Come out to Boneshaker Books every Sunday between 11 AM and Noon starting June 9th to experience a story time that celebrates every child for the magical person that they are! Let’s have some fun!!

The Enneagram is a way of understanding nine basic types of people and how we behave, communicate, interpret things and respond in the world. The enneagram gives us a tool for understanding ourselves and the connections between the personality, psychological development and spiritual transformation. During this evening you’ll learn about the Enneagram system, discover your Enneagram number, and see how that style plays out in how we communicate and interact with people in our lives-at work, in our inter-peronal relationships and in community. Fees will cover beverages and snacks, plus enneagram materials you can take home with you. A minimum of 12 participants is necessary, and a maximum of 30 will be allowed, so register today. Future workshops will be held to learn about how the enneagram plays out in our communication, giving feedback, conflict, teamwork, leadership and transformation. These skills are bound to give you great insight into all of your inter-personal relationship. Your facilitator is Holly Johnson, who is trained in the Enneagram in Business, by Ginger Lapid-Bogda. Holly understands herself to be a Social Two with a well-traveled Eight-line, and if you don’t know what that means but are curious, this evening is the right place to be. She has facilitated trainings for college groups, women’s groups, office teams and leaders. Holly is also the pastor of Spirit Garage.

Living Soil Film Night! @ Birchwood Café, 3311 E 25th St • 6pm
Come get dinner at the Birchwood Cafe and join us for this free screening in their Community Room! Newly released, this hour-long documentary produced by the Soil Health Institute is a beautiful look into the transformations occurring in rural (and urban!) America. Farmers are leading the charge to regenerate their degraded soils and we can all learn a ton from them! RSVP above! Find out more about the film here: https://soilhealthinstitute.org/ Living Soil: A Documentary for All of Us Our soils support 95 percent of all food production, and by 2060, our soils will be asked to give us as much food as we have consumed in the last 500 years. They filter our water. They are one of our most cost-effective reservoirs for sequestering carbon. They are our foundation for biodiversity. And they are vibrantly alive, teeming with 10,000 pounds of biological life in every acre. Yet in the last 150 years, we’ve lost half of the basic building block that makes soil productive. The societal and environmental costs of soil loss and degradation in the United States alone are now estimated to be as high as $85 billion every single year. Like any relationship, our living soil needs our tenderness. It’s time we changed everything we thought we knew about soil. Let’s make this the century of living soil

Crime Book Club: Death of a Nationalist @ Moon Palace Books, 3230 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join the Crime Book Club for a discussion of Rebecca Pawel’s Death of a Nationalist. Get your copy at Moon Palace for 20% off! Madrid 1939. Carlos Tejada Alonso y León is a Sergeant in the Guardia Civil, a rank rare for a man not yet thirty, but Tejada is an unusual recruit. The bitter civil war between the Nationalists and the Republicans has interrupted his legal studies in Salamanca. Second son of a conservative Southern family of landowners, he is an enthusiast for the Catholic Franquista cause, a dedicated, and now triumphant, Nationalist. This war has drawn international attention. In a dress rehearsal for World War II, fascists support the Nationalists, while communists have come to the aid of the Republicans. Atrocities have devastated both sides. It is at this moment, when the Republicans have surrendered, and the Guardia Civil has begun to impose order in the ruins of Madrid, that Tejada finds the body of his best friend, a hero of the siege of Toledo, shot to death on a street named Amor de Dios. Naturally, a Red is suspected. And it is easy for Tejada to assume that the woman caught kneeling over the body is the killer. But when his doubts are aroused, he cannot help seeking justice. https://www.moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=4823

Reading with David Mura @ Moon Palace Books, 3230 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
In A Stranger’s Journey: Race, Identity & Narrative Craft in Writing, David Mura has written a book on creative writing that addresses our increasingly diverse American literature. Mura argues for a more inclusive and expansive definition of craft, particularly in relationship to race, even as he elucidates timeless rules of narrative construction in fiction and memoir. His essays offer technique-focused readings of writers such as James Baldwin, ZZ Packer, Maxine Hong Kingston, Jhumpa Lahiri, Mary Karr, and Garrett Hongo, while making compelling connections to Mura’s own life and work as a Japanese American writer. This is a book for writers who want to engage with the issues with race and identity and writers who want to learn essential narrative techniques used in fiction and memoir. Upon finishing this book, I think that we will no longer be strangers. We will no longer feel that we are on our journey alone. This book is the intersection where our paths meet, where we can forge bonds that transcend the racial divide. Maybe from here on out, we can accompany each other on our journeys as friends and fellow artists, but most importantly, as fellow humans. (Reyna Grande author of The Distance Between Us) “A Stranger’s Journey is an essential work of literary criticism and memoir, challenging readers and writers alike to think about writing, race, and identity in new ways.” (Rebecca Hussey Foreword Reviews) David Mura’s “A Stranger’s Journey” is a new kind of literary criticism—personal, postcolonial, analytic and dramatic—his insights into the situation of the writer of color amidst centrist assumptions and prohibitions open a new field of critical and creative thinking woven together in a book that could have been called “Castiglione’s The Courtier Meets Sun-tzu’s Art of War.” (Garrett Hongo, author of Volcano) https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=4912
