Food for Thought: Idea Forum & Potluck

Food for Thought Idea Forum & Potluck is a place to get inspired and share your mind. Instead of everyone reading the same book, everyone responds to the same topic through whatever media that resonates with them, like a backwards book club.

Share a reading from a book or talk about an experience (a memory, album, play, or movie) to connect with the month's topic. Or bring something new (perform a poem, sing a song, read some prose). Also: bring some food to share!
