Talk euthanasia at PoCo's Leigh Square

If you’re always up for a lively, thoughtful discussion, plan to be at the Gathering Place on Sept. 19.

That’s when Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square Community Arts Village and Simon Fraser University host the latest instalment of Philosophers’ Cafe.

The topic on Sept. 19 is euthanasia, according to a press release: “As more and more people live into advanced age, and more technology and pharmaceuticals are available to keep them alive, the issues of euthanasia becomes more pressing.”

The discussion moderator is Graham Forst, who taught philosophy and English at the university level for many years and has published widely on the subject of literary criticism.

The Philosopher’s Cafe starts at 7 p.m. at 1100-2253 Leigh Sq., where it’s held the third Monday of each month.

Admission is $5 per person and neither registration nor experience is required. Call 778-782-5215 or visit www.philosopherscafe.net for further information.
