McNally Robinson is hosting a book launch for our own Erika Dyck, who will be reading from and signing copies of her excellent new book, Psychedelic Psychiatry: LSD from Clinic to Campus on Thursday Oct 23 2008 7:30 pm in the Art Alcove of the McNally Robinson bookstore on 8th Street. Everyone welcome. (Click here to see the full list of McNally Robinson's upcoming events.)

In case you don't have your copy yet, Psychedelic Psychiatry is the tale of medical researchers (many of them right here in non-halucagenic Saskatchewan!) working to understand LSD’s therapeutic properties just as escalating anxieties about drug abuse in modern society laid the groundwork for the end of experimentation out there (or rather, around here) at the edge of psychopharmacology.

Erika, who joined us this fall,
is an associate professor in our department.
