Featured on the September 1st, 2022 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- Meet Kevin Hines, a mental health advocate with a remarkable story to tell about surviving his attempted suicide. Hines will visit Tucson next week to present his documentary film “Suicide: The Ripple Effect”. It tells about a network of people whose lives have been touched by suicide, who are working together to keep others from experiencing similar tragedies.
Intermountain Centers and Kevin Hines present a free screening of the award-winning documentary Suicide: The Ripple Effect on Friday, September 9th, at 7 p.m. at the Leo Rich Theatre, 206 S. Church Street in Tucson. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Hines. Click here for more information and to register for the screening.
- “The Lifespan of a Fact” is a thought-provoking stage play about our culture’s shifting standards for factual reporting, exploring where truth begins and ends in the media. It runs through September 11th at The Invisible Theater, and Mark talks with director Susan Claassen and actor Emily Gates about the production.
- And, guest contributor Julia Blumberg visits the Arizona History Museum to view an exhibition of the Migrant Quilt Project, a volunteer-powered effort to commemorate the names of migrants who have perished attempting to cross the U.S. / Mexico border.
