Community Café: The Price of Happiness

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free – $5

The Community Café is a grassroots discussion circle focused on topics in American life and the role of the United States in the global community. Participants will read a thought-provoking short story, The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas, by Ursula K. LeGuin.  This work of fiction questions how far we are willing to go as a society to live the Utopian dream. Participants read the story ahead of time and arrive prepared to participate in a lively discussion.

Community Cafes are led by Dr. Francine Jamin.  Brown bag lunches are welcome.  Advanced registration is required and the discussion is limited to 15 people.

Free for museum members and $5 for non-members.
