Teen Agora
with Dr. Merow

Teen Agora is the library's new teen philosophy club for ages 15 to 18. We all make philosophical judgments, some using careful, logical analysis, and others relying on emotion, popular sentiment, hearsay, and highly questionable lines of thought. Our goal is to polish the skills needed to make rational decisions about contentious issues. We will continue the great conversation in the tradition of the Socratic dialogs. For more information and optional readings, contact Kate:  kmayberry@northwaleslibrary.org  or call 215-699-5410. 
For more information on  Teen and Tween events, please visit - or call - the Library and ask for the Youth Services Assistant.
