Beginning in April, Philosophers’ Café’ is launching a new Book Salon Café series that offers an opportunity for in-depth conversations about a particular book chosen by a café moderator. The chosen books are easily accessible and have important links to current debates and the history of ideas.
The six book salons, which run at various venues from early April to late June, supplement the regular cafés. Anyone with an interest in ideas is encouraged to read the book from the reading list and come join in the conversation.
All cafés begin at 7pm. They are free, open to the public, and require no registration. We hope to see you there!
