Open Book Turns 10

Just a decade ago, Open Book opened its doors as the first literary and book arts center of its kind in the nation. Since then, the creative energy of the building has not only attracted readers, writers, artists, and passersby to explore the space and see what the tenant literary organizations have to offer, but Open Book has also spurred the rapid development of a once-run-down neighborhood. Learn more about 10 inspiring years devoted to the book, covered by local Minnesota presses.

Toxic theology, any theological system that fosters trauma or abuse, is all too common in the Christian Church experience. Come join us as we explore the destructive role of toxic theology in our lives: its negative impact on our health, and the ways in which we can heal from this trauma.
