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.

Parking will be available in Lot C4, which is accessible from Cantrell Avenue.

Team of Destiny: Inside UVA Basketball's improbable run

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

The book, with additional reporting by Zach Pereles, Scott Ratcliffe and Scott German, will take you from the aftermath of the stunning first-round loss to UMBC in 2018, and how coach Tony Bennett and his team used that loss as the source of strength, through to the ACC regular-season championship, the run to the Final Four, and the thrilling overtime win over Texas Tech to win the 2019 national title, the first in school history.


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
