Program Description


Pack a lunch, invite a friend, and join the discussion. This month we’ll watch and discuss “Birds aren't real? How a conspiracy takes flight" by Peter McIndoe.  This eye-opening talk takes a turn and makes a larger point about conspiracies, truth and belonging in divisive times.

This month's talk was selected as a companion to "Voices and Votes:  Democracy in America," a traveling Museum on Main Street collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and Humanities Kansas.


What they are:  TED Talks are short, carefully prepared, idea-focused talks that foster learning, inspiration, and wonder.

Why we like 'em:  no matter the topic covered, these talks provoke conversation and inspire listeners to continue thinking and learning far after the presenter has finished

How to join:  bring your lunch to the library on Thursday, November 9 and join in as we watch a highly rated TED Talk and continue the conversation amongst ourselves

What else should I know?  Coffee and dessert are provided
