Participants discuss selected articles such as profiles of political and thought leaders, stories on scientific, legal and environmental issues, reviews, humor pieces, and, occasionally, fiction and poetry. The group meets on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month through May, 2020. It intends to be a welcoming, thought-provoking and enthusiastic gathering of friends and neighbors where all points of view are respected.
