Homelessness Documentary Screening
If this sounds a little too depressing for you, think again. Salt Lake City hospice The Inn Between is highlighted in the KUED Channel 7 documentary Homeless at the End, which gives an intimate look at the final months and days of people who, if not for The Inn Between, likely would have died on the streets or in a shelter without support. "The film shows the need for greater understanding and compassion for the terminally ill as they face the end of life," KUED's online description reads. The one-hour screening is followed by a panel discussion including Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams, Deseret News Columnist Lois Collins and staff of The Inn Between. SLC Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, 801-524-8200, Wednesday, Nov. 1, 7-9 p.m., RSVP to ldurham@kued.org by Oct. 29, free, bit.ly/2l4pJuT

Trump and the Media
Getting tired of hearing that everything is #fakenews? Take a break to listen to The New Yorker Editor David Remnick speak about Press in the Age of Trump instead. Remnick knows what he's talking about. He's authored several books, including The Bridge: The Life and Rise of Barack Obama and Lenin's Tomb: The Final Days of The Soviet Empire, for which he received a Pulitzer Prize for nonfiction and a George Polk Award for Excellence in Journalism.He's written a thing or two about the tweeting president, too. Rowland Hall, 720 Guardsman Way, 801-355-7485, Saturday, Oct. 28, 7 p.m., free, bit.ly/2zEk3eg

Rappelling Against Violence
Well, this should be fun to watch. You can see some 90 participants rappel off the Maverik Base Camp building—that's 13 stories, BTW—in Over the Edge, an event to raise awareness of domestic violence. The rappellers have raised $1,000 each to help fund services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault at the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center at the YWCA. You can also register to participate in the fundraising challenge individually or as a team, with the option of rappelling (see website for details).At the base, there main event includes music, food and, of course, a public viewing. Maverik Base Camp, 185 S. State, 801-537-8610, Friday, Oct. 27, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., bit.ly/2yve0ev
