Please join us on Tuesday, February 18 at 7:30 p.m. when author and educator Christopher Phillips returns to share his most recent project: Constitution Café.
Phillips travels the country engaging Americans in talk about the Constitution. Following the successful format of his 2011 book, Constitution Café: Jefferson’s Brew for a True Revolution, Phillips encourages communities to generate a new, nationwide Constitutional Convention to help Americans better understand and challenge our most fundamental freedoms. Find out about the power and promise of democracy in this absorbing and challenging discussion.
Phillips is a Senior Writing Fellow at University of Pennsylvania's Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing and executive director of the nonprofit Democracy Café, dedicated to making ours a more thoughtful, inclusive and participatory world by spearheading dialogue groups. Phillips is also the author of the best-selling Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy.
Our Constitution Café: program is of special interest to adults, teens, middle-schoolers and curious elementary school kids. No registration required and all are welcome.Posted by library at February 14, 2014 03:44 PM
