Daily Calendar: Dream a little dream with author Micah Toub

Denver-raised Journalist Micah Toub had a childhood like no one else's: While other kids' parents were content asking how their school day went, Toub's parents, both Jungian therapists, were perhaps looking for something deeper in their son's day-to-day existence. He apparently turned out all right, though, since he's willing to spill all, with a good helping of love, in his new memoir, Growing Up Jung: Coming of Age as the Son of Two Shrinks. With insights few others could bring to the table, Toub openly discusses his personal experience, as well as Jungian psychology in general, in well-researched, clearly written form. He'll be in town tonight to discuss and sign the book at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2526 E. Colfax Avenue; call 303-322-7727.
