Let's Talk About

Think of it as a meetup — for your mind.
Let's Talk About engages the local community in the lost art of conversation by addressing the topics we often shy away from — from a divergent way of thinking to the controversies we see in the news.
Join us as an observer or a thoughtful contributor. The event is yours and we promise to provide a respectful environment for you to discover, learn and grow.
