Bookends and BeginningsSeptember 25th, 2015, join June at Nina Barrett’s lovely independent bookstore Bookends and Beginnings from 7-9:30pm for a special one-night engagement. June will read selected excerpts from “All In The Asylum” and hold broad discussion about her proactive approach to mental health.

All in the Asylum is the first work by June Thiemann, a teacher, writer, and child advocate in Minneapolis. This memoir project began 22 years ago after she gave birth to her first son. She couldn’t complete it, however, until she figured out a strategy to keep herself and her kids from . . . disappearing. The treatment of themes in this book seeks to provide solace for those trying to make sense of their own mental health issues or the mental illness of loved ones.

Tucked away down the Alley, it almost feels like a speakeasy of the 1920’s. You are in the know to find your way there, and go inside to get drunk on books.” –Mary R. on yelp

It’s true, it can be a challenge to find us. Here’s the address the mail carrier uses:

But you might have the most luck locating Saville Flowers at 1712 Sherman Avenue, and then heading down the alley you find bordering their south wall.
