We will finish the book Washington's Farewell: The Founding Father's Warning to Future Generations by John Avlon. This book goes into the details of Washington's socio-political views and how his life experiences helped to shape them.

If you come we promise to help shape some of your historico-discussionary views.

Minnesota Muslims-Up Close

Tamim Saidi
Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:30am
Washburn Library, 5244 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis

Muslims have been part of Minnesota since the 19th Century so why are we just noticing them now? Examine the diversity and the unity of the Muslim experience in the Land of a Thousand Lakes.

The speaker, Tamim Saidi, has been active in describing Islam and the Muslim's culture and way of life. This is your chance to hear what being a Muslim is like in the land of Lutherans and how Minnesota Nice plays out with an increasingly visible religious group.

Philosophy Study Group

Curt Hillstrom
Monday, April 30, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Curran's Restaurant, 42nd and Nicollet in Minneapolis

We will read chapters 3 and 4 of Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence by Max Tegmark. For this meeting we are going to try something different. In keeping with the spirit of the book, rather than having an intelligent conversation, we are going to attempt to SIMULATE an intelligent conversation.

Come and participate in this bold experiment.
