The Salon: A Forum for Conversation

The Bainbridge Public Library hosts a monthly discussion group. It meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. The Salon is for men and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in civil dialogue. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing, fun, and thought provoking.  Next up is:

How Do the Recent Supreme Court Decisions Affect Us?

As the Supreme Court concludes its 2015 work, people, pundits, politicians, and maybe the nine Justices themselves, are wondering, "What Does it All Mean — to Me, to the Beliefs I Hold Dear, to the Organizations that I Support, and to Others?” The topic lends itself to all kinds of potential detours on the discussion path: What is The Supreme Court’s rightful function? Does the Supreme Court have a hidden agenda? Has it become political and/or personal? How has its role changed — or not — in recent years? 

Join us at the Salon on Friday, July 24 at 1:30 pm at the Bainbridge Public Library where civil discourse is the norm and you’re free to express yourself. Click below for readings from The New York Times and Gallup website that may help spur your thinking on the topic.
