From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Friday, June 13:

In Washington, the Labor Department issues the Producer Price Index for May.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon celebrates his 70th birthday.

A three-day festival celebrating duct tape gets underway in Avon, Ohio. There’s a parade, and clothes and the opportunity to get stuck to someone.

Or maybe you prefer some alone time. You’re in luck. National Hermit Week begins.

And some folks celebrate National Weed Your Garden Day. That’s guaranteed to get you some alone time.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
