What we're about

This is a new monthly MeetUp for people interested in Stoicism and Stoic philosophy in the Greater Milwaukee area, hosted at the Shorewood Public Library.

We'll be discussing modern day interpretations and applications of Stoicism, classic Stoic texts, thinkers, and ideas, how people use and live out the philosophy today - and whatever else members of the group would like to talk about.

Some months - for instance during October, which features International Stoic Week - we may hold additional events.

Grab a copy and join in the Stoic Joy.
