A publication and discussion series for curious readers.


Volume X: Coming Soon


“We hold these truths to be self evident…”

This volume of the Sobremesa Reading Club presents three short primary sources (photography, philosophy, and a short story) that explore the relationship between truth, education, and authority.

Why do emotional narratives carry the weight of truth? Who do we trust to tell us the truth? What is the status of evidence and expertise in a “post-truth” culture? What makes authority authoritative?

Premiering at Summit X on Friday, November 15!
