Welcome

Lucid Book Club and Reading Series is a quarterly event utilizing the world of literature to promote professional and community education on issues pertaining to mental health and illness. The establishment of this book club and reading series is predicated on the notion that novels, essays and memoirs are not only about literary merit and entertainment, but also, distinctly, can be about ideas that make us re-consider who we are, how we live and how we practice as mental health clinicians.

Meetings are now held from 5:30 to 6:45 pm at the Cinematheque theatre, 1131 Howe Street (map). Access is by way of the front door of the theatre on Howe Street.  

Please note that Lucid events now occur on the same evenings of the Frames of Mind Mental Health film series. These film screenings begin at 7:30 PM also at the Cinematheque theatre, 1131 Howe Street. Those attending Lucid can purchase tickets to attend the Frames Of Mind screening immediately following the Lucid event.

Lucid events are free BUT RSVPs are required.

Everyone is welcome.

Our next Lucid event is on September 18 at 5:30 PM. Lindsay Wong will be reading from her award-winning memoir The Woo-Woo: How I Survived Ice Hockey, Drug Raids, Demons, and My Crazy Chinese Family

Subsequent 2019 readings are to be announced.

Lucid meetings are under the direction of Dr. Harry Karlinsky, Clinical Professor, UBC Department of Psychiatry. Valuable assistance provided by Karen Wang, Medical Student, UBC Faculty of Medicine and Paige Zhang, Psychiatry resident, Faculty of Medicine.

Supported by the UBC Department of Psychiatry and the Institute of Mental Health.
