Dear Friends & Family,


Here are our picks for this week, starting TONIGHT. You can also click HERE to read the new February issue. See photos from last month's CATALYST 100 party. Meet poet and Rumi expert Coleman Barks, and a cool teen who is active in the locovore scene. Even though the light is becoming brighter, it's still good to learn to protect yourself from seasonal affective disorder and bad air. Then there's Am Brunvand to tell you about our area's events for One Billion Rising, a global women's dance project.



Thank you!
