Homeopathy Film and Q&A

Just One Drop tells the story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine. To many, homeopathy seems implausable. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse, a form of deception or quackery.  Yet homeopathy has been around for over 200 years and is used by millions of people around the world. The film explores the controversy, reveals the rich history, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake.

Join us for the film and Q&A afterward.  The film is being hosted by a local nationally certified classical homeopath Abby Beale CCH, who is also board president for The National Center for Homeopathy.

Teen Creative Writing Workshop

photo of teens writingThe Teen Creative Writing Workshop is now genre-inclusive and open to adults as well! We are expanding our program to address everything from magical realism to poetry to memoir. But if you prefer the old format, don't worry: the first hour of each workshop is reserved for teens and will continue to focus on science fiction and fantasy. Not a teen or a Tolkien fan? No problem! Join us for our second hour of workshop and prepare to master the fundamentals of creative writing. Writers of all disciplines and skill levels welcome. 

No registration required.
