Autumn Session @ Flourish Pilates + Bodywork, 3347 42 Ave S • 10:30am-12:30pm
Did you know that in Traditional Chinese Medicine each season is associated with organs in the body? And in Movement Medicine, that each season affects our alignment, fascia and muscles? Join Melinda Van Eeckhout, LAc and I to learn how to keep your body healthy through the Fall. This workshop is part lecture/part movement specifically designed to nurture you through the season. The organ associated with Fall are the lungs. When in balance, the Lungs are associated with deep breathing, clear thinking and communication, positive self image and the ability to let go. They also relate to how the diaphragm and pelvic floor function.  As we shift from the expansive nature of summer to the contractive nature of Autumn, learn how to nourish the Lungs and it’s partner the Large Intestine with essential oils, foods and specific movements to support the body through this season.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

Anna Stine is an indie folk artist creating music that ponders the trials and triumphs that make us most human. Her lyrics and melodies are driven by a soulful authenticity that invites audiences to connect to their own stories. Anna harmoniously blends together her love of honest folk songs and haunting jazz melodies, while drawing upon the influence of powerful female artists such as Billie Holiday, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones and Laura Marling. Anna’s experiences as a music therapist have given her a unique understanding of the ways that music can enrapture and transform us, and she seeks to manifest this through her intentional presence and performance. In her debut album “Company of Now”, set to be released Sunday, October 28, Anna delves into the delicate dance of being present in the midst of growth and discomfort. Through songs that speak to both suffering and self-acceptance, she encourages listeners to stand tall, breathe easy, and step from the ground they’re standing on.

Reading with Leif Pettersen @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Leif Pettersen’s Backpacking with Dracula is a quest to explore fact, legend and fiction about Vlad “Tepeş” Dracula, the extravagantly mustachioed 15th century prince of Wallachia. Tepeş’ conflicting characterizations included being a brutal tyrant, a hero, a traumatized child who became a psychopath, a passionate leader whose reign brought order to a region in chaos, and/or a textbook sadist who prolifically impaled tens of thousands of enemies. Four centuries later, Dracula’s legend for committing heinous atrocities inspired Bram Stoker to recast Tepeş as an undead corpse reliant on the blood of the living to sustain his immortality. While peeling away these layers, Pettersen shares his accumulated knowledge of modern day Romania, where he lived and traveled for a cumulative two years while researching multiple editions of Lonely Planet guidebooks. Vlad Tepes died in 1476, and Bram Stoker in 1912, yet Count Dracula lives on in an extraordinary subculture of literature, TV and film. The original Dracula novel has never been out of print. At this event, Leif will appear in conversation with Frank Bures. Frank is the author of The Geography of Madness, curator of the Lester Literary Update, and editor of the Forthcoming Under Purple Skies: The Minneapolis Anthology. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=3929

Dario Argento 35mm Double Feature @ Trylon Cinema, 2820 E 33rd St • 7pm
Giallo (Italian for yellow) horror cinema, a term that alludes to the yellowing paper of pulp novels, came to be synonymous with Argento. Though often criticized as cheap and overly violent, his movies nonetheless exemplify the genre. His blazing reds and stunning blues create a beautiful texture for stories of astounding dread. The Cult Film Collective presents rare 35mm prints of two films that mark the apex of Argento’s career DEEP RED (1975) After witnessing a murder, Marcus Daly (Hemmings) goes on the run with a woman reporter (Nicolodi). Guided by a Giorgio Gaslini Goblin score and framed in meticulous cinematography, Deep Red is Argento’s definitive crime film.
FRI 7:00
SAT 9:15
SUN 3:00
TENEBRE (1982) This film follows pulp novelist Peter Neal (Franciosa), whose books a killer is using as inspiration. Argento reportedly made Tenebre in an effort to put an end to the Giallo genre. This 35mm print, the only one known in the U.S., is presented courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

After the bright sun and heat of summer, this change might seem harsh, even if you love all of the seasons! If you notice these symptoms as the cold months come in: feeling depressed, experiencing sleep issues, sluggishness and agitation, difficulty concentrating, low energy, overeating, weight gain, craving for carbohydrates, social withdrawal (feel like “hibernating”), you may suffer from SAD – Seasonal Affective Disorder.
While I personally have not been diagnosed with SAD, I will say that I feel it mild to medium-ly. Please, if you notice these symptoms mildly or more, I urge you to seek counsel from a health professional and give yourself the love you deserve to thrive in the cold season. Can yoga help? I certainly hope so, and believe it can. It has given me hope! Some postures are enlivening and can enhance focus / concentration. Also, focusing on inhale and feeling the breath expand in the rib cage can feel expansive and hopeful. In this workshop, we’ll practice postures for energy and focus, breathwork to soothe the nervous system, and discuss some practical lifestyle tips to weather the season with grace.

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!

Reading with Brian DeVore @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 7pm
Join agricultural journalist Brian DeVore for a discussion centered around his new book, Wildly Successful Farming: Sustainability and the New Agricultural Land Ethic. This book tells the stories of farmers in Minnesota and across the Midwest who are balancing viable food production with environmental sustainability and a passion for all things wild. They are using innovative techniques and strategies to develop their “wildly successful” farms as working ecosystems. DeVore, a writer, editor and podcaster who works for the Minnesota-based Land Stewardship Project, has spent the past 25 years traveling the Midwest, conducting interviews with the farmers, scientists, activists and other “ecological agrarians” who are blending the wild and the tame as they strive to create environmentally and economically sustainable food production systems. DeVore will read from his book and discuss what we can all do to support the wildly successful farmers who are raising healthy food, protecting our water and building resilient landscapes. https://moonpalacebooks.com//?q=h.calevent&eid=4021

Bollywood Dance (FREE) at CANDO • 7pm • FREE
OIBY, in collaboration with Bollywood Dance Scene and The Central Neighborhood, Minneapolis, is very happy to bring Bollywood Dance to the community. We offer FREE Bollywood Dance every 4th Tuesday of the month!! Choreographer and Bollywood Dance Scene founding member Divya Maiya says, “Bollywood is inspired by various dance forms like classical, folk, as well as street dances. So it’s a huge mash-up of those forms along with hip-hop, belly dancing, and jazz. It does not conform to any strict format. People of all age groups can dance together. It does not require partners. It is over the top ridiculous and you need that to forget all the serious and grim happenings in your life.”

Reading with Jason Walz @ Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave • 6:30pm
Join us for a reading and interactive drawing event with Jason Walz, author of the new graphic novel Last Pick. In this first volume of Jason Walz’s dystopian graphic novel trilogy, the kids last picked are humanity’s last hope. Three years ago, aliens invaded Earth and abducted everyone they deemed useful. The only ones spared were those too young, too old, or too “disabled” to be of value. Living on Earth under the aliens’ harsh authoritarian rule, humanity’s rejects do their best to survive. Their captors never considered them a threat–until now. Twins Sam and Wyatt are ready to chuck their labels and start a revolution. It’s time for the kids last picked to step into the game. Jason Walz is a cartoonist and teacher working in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Born in the South, he bounced around between Kentucky and Tennessee before working his way up north. His debut graphic novel, Homesick, was nominated for an Eisner in 2014. He followed that up with the online comic series Crap Shoot, where he worked with some of today’s biggest comic creators. He is also the author of A Story for Desmond, a comic about loss and the gifts left behind by those who are gone
