Bedlam Book Reading and Film Discussion with Dr. Ken Rosenberg
Join the Hennepin County Library and NAMI Minnesota for a book reading and discussion with Ken Rosenberg, MD, about his book and documentary film: Bedlam. Dr. Rosenberg is a distinguished fellow of the American Psychiatric Association with a private practice in Manhattan, and clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the New York-Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center. Dr. Rosenberg is also a Peabody Award-winning filmmaker.

Dr. Rosenberg begins his chronicle of what it means to live with a mental illness in America today, integrating his own moving story of how the system failed his sister, Merle, who lived with schizophrenia. The culmination of a seven-year inquiry, Bedlam is not only a rallying cry for change, but also a guidebook for how we move forward with care and compassion, and resources that have never before been compiled.

There will also be an opportunity for free virtual access to Dr. Rosenberg’s book and film before the event. For details or if you have any questions, contact Daniel Marcou, Hennepin County Library, at 612-543-8852 or dmarcou@hclib.org. This event is capped at 100 attendees.
