Socrates Café

The Marian Sutherland Kirby Library will host Socrates Café on Wednesday, July 27 at 6:30 pm. Adults with inquisitive minds welcome! The group regularly meets the fourth Wednesday of every month.

Socrates Café is a gathering where people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while embracing the Socratic Method.

Come prepared to discuss important ideas thoughtfully and honestly, to respectfully question the ideas of others, and to engage in conversation and intellectual interaction.

The discussion is facilitated by Steve Wallace who participates in several Socrates Café groups locally. The discussion will take place in the Reading Room of the library. The library is located at 35 Kirby Ave., Mountaintop. No need to register, just show up! Call 570-474-9313 for more information.
