This Saturday, May 30th, MeanRed Productions, Free NYC, Newmindspace and Refuge NYC are teaming up to bring you a free marketplace along the Gowanus Canal. From 11a.m to 6p.m, haul all the crap you have lying around to BKYLN Yard . Leave your donations at the door and then spend the afternoon rooting through the piles of apparel, books, kitchen products, art supplies and music. Local DJs will be providing the background music and there will be a Treats Truck to satisfy your hunger that free goodies just won't satisfy.

The Score, part sociological inquiry, part biology primer, and full of blessed wit, explores why the male of the species is who he is.

Less an argument against the institution of marriage than a comprehensive history, this is a fun read that's simultaneously cheeky and no-nonsense.

This academic argument that inequality between the sexes is not historically the “natural” state of things is compelling but dry.
