WRITING THROUGH GRIEF
Join Art Access for a timely and necessary evening of exploration as participants peel back their grief. Local essayist Debbie Leaman leads the readings from participants of a recent workshop, Writing Through Grief. Hear about the anger, humor and suffering of the inevitable human experience of grief, and share your own writing during an open-mic session. Art Access is one of Utah's most unique galleries serving a diverse population of adults and children, including those with disabilities, as well as the elderly, youth-at-risk, refugees, the homeless, veterans and other disenfranchised groups. Art Access, 230 S. 500 West, Ste. 125, Friday, Nov. 4, 6:30-8 p.m., 801-328-0703, Bit.ly/2ej4X2Z

INN BETWEEN FUNDRAISER
It's a sure bet that a night of Vegas-style games will be both fun and worthwhile as the Inn Between hosts its first-ever Casino Night Fundraiser. The Inn Between helps the homeless through their end-of-life journeys by providing a caring and safe home for them during hospice. You can dine in style while playing blackjack, roulette, craps and Texas hold'em. There will be live music, a hypnosis show and a silent auction, as well as jewelry and other items crafted by the residents. Everyone wins in this humanitarian effort. St. Vincent de Paul Parish and School, 1375 Spring Lane, Holladay, 385-743-1660, Thursday, Nov. 10, 5:30-10:30 p.m., $50+, Bit.ly/2eDKV69

READING OF DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
What could be more important during this election season than an understanding of the Declaration of Independence? Author Danielle Allen, director of the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics at Harvard University and the recipient of a MacArthur "genius" grant," lectures on Our Declaration, about which she has written a line-by-line commentary. "Allen writes movingly about growing up in a mixed-race African-American family whose dinner conversations often turned to the Declaration and its claim that 'all men are created equal,'" The New York Times wrote. Wildcat Theater, Weber State University, 3910 W. Campus Drive, Ogden, 801-626-6252, Friday, Nov. 11, 11:30 a.m., free, Weber.edu
