8:00-10:00pm: Philosopher's Cafe

Bedford House, Fort Langley
Cost: $10

You will be having a rich feast, an intellectual banquet at the conference. In order to aid your digestion we’ve arranged for a philosophers’ café in which you will be asked to “put out” rather than “take in”. Our experience at other conferences has indicated that participants need a venue in which they can work out and integrate what they’ve heard; in which they can add their unique flavours to the feast. Here is a chance to meet and interact with other participants and presenters in a more informal atmosphere. Our café will be moderated by Larry Green who has moderated such a café in Fort Langley for the past seven years.

Appetizers & beverages will be served.

*Please RSVP to mike.wipf@twu.ca due to limited space availability. There will be a shuttle service from TWU & Walnut Grove to this event.

Many may wish to go across the street to the Fort Pub after the philosopher's cafe.

The Bedford House is located in the Historic Village of Fort Langley. It is nestled against the Bedford Channel in a beautiful garden setting http://www.fortlangleyvillage.com/
