Author event with Stephen Trimble

Thursday, December 8, 2022


Join us for an evening with Stephen Trimble as he discusses his lates book "The Mike File". 

In The Mike File, Stephen Trimble grapples with his brother's heartrending life and death and looks behind doors he’s barricaded in himself.

In 1957, when “Stevie” was six and Mike 14, psychosis overwhelmed Mike. He never lived at home again and died alone in a Denver boarding home at 33. Journalists used Mike’s death to expose these “ratholes” warehousing people with mental illness. 

Detective story, social history, journey of self-discovery, and compassionate and unsparing memorial to a family and a forgotten life, The Mike File will move every reader with a relative or friend touched by psychiatric illness or disability.

Discussion with a mental health professional to follow.
