Bring your budding intellectual to explore some of life’s biggest questions!
Acclaimed philosopher Simon Critchley, along with a group of guest philosophers—Joseph Lemelin, Dora Suarez, Brandyn Heppard, and Jennifer Morton—will lead a series of discussions at the Brooklyn Public Library where young thinkers will be invited to ponder timeless philosophical questions. Curiosity, imagination, and reflection will reign free during these workshops!
