Pulitzer finalist Pete Earley will discuss his book Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness Friday at James Madison University.

Earley’s talk will begin at 10 a.m. in the Transitions Room of Warren Hall on the JMU campus.

Earley’s book was one of two finalists for the 2007 Pulitzer Prize.

The author was interviewed for a story in the Summer 2007 edition of The New Dominion magazine on mental-health issues entitled “Mind games: Virginia mental-health system under the microscope.”

The talk is free and open to the public.
