If you want to be with friends Friday night discussing the latest everybody's learning about philosophy, politics, science, psychology, religion, history - and you want to learn something new:



For the nosy person who doesn’t have time to read it all but wants to know it all.

Bring whatever you've been reading, and come to discuss that and what everyone else is reading.  Subjects can include just about anything from the above list: fiction or non-fiction.  Books or blogs or articles .  Come to talk or come to listen.  No pressure, just friendly fun.

RSVP above now.
(It helps us know how to set up.)

We 'll give anyone who wants 3-5 minutes to explain what they've been reading, and another 3-5 minutes for everyone to ask questions and discuss.  We always learn a ton.  Come make new friends and learn something new about what they’ve been reading.  It's the ultimate information exchange.


We'll start out with a 10- or 15-minute topical discussion (no more than that!).

Enjoy an evening with old friends, and make some new ones.

Come at 6:45 p.m. to get a good seat, to get to know folks, and to enjoy some coffee/dessert/dinner.

Green Mill or Callahan's afterward for more conversation.

    Fascinating reports and spirited discussions that got us inside the Muslim Mind (with a book titled "Inside the Muslim Mind), The History of John Brown (he wasn't the wild-eyed fanatic you may have heard about), Occidental Mythology (and how it was influenced by Oriental mythology), Pearl Buck in China (the woman behind the novels is as impressive as the novels), Angela's Ashes, The Basque History of the World (they sound like they need their own country), and Consciousness (the story of how neuroscientists are trying to piece together "the hard problem" - how to derive self-awareness from neural connections and information theory, and is there still room for free will?).

    But the most lively discussion occurred afterward for an additional three hours at The Green Mill, where no two people agreed on anything. Great fun!

    I won't be able to make it tonight, but if nobody minds my plugging a book I recently published (on kindle) The Unabsolved is one you might find interesting. It is set within a more or less christian cosmology but written by someone who is not themselves christian.
