Think & Drink: Informed Citizen with Laura Nelson
Think & Drink conversations invite people to participate in facilitated discussions with public intellectuals who have expertise in the subject at hand. The idea isn’t to create consensus but, rather, to have an open interplay of viewpoints and perspectives.
Sam’s Tap Room will host a conversation with Laura Nelson. Laura is one of our Informed Citizen speakers and will lead a conversation about how journalists of the past help historians understand the events, reactions, and stories that were important in a community and how journalists today write the history future generations will use to understand who they are. These conversations seek to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry.
