FORT PLAIN — People who relish a hearty but respectful dialog about a range of ideas and topics are invited to the Philo Cafe at the Fort Plain Free Library, 19 Willett St., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursday of each month.
The free, casual gatherings of the philosophically minded are based topics suggested by those present. The Civil War will be the subject of the Aug. 1 forum. The Aug. 15 topic has yet to be determined. Time travel, the influence of movies and the nature of the self were among other recent themes.
For more information, call (518) 993-4646 or follow the library on Facebook for updates.
