Pub events are back! Don’t miss tonight’s launch of: The Lounge for Young Professionals, developed by the same creators as Catholic After Hours and brought to you by Vancouver’s Life Community.
Come for the networking games and great conversation and fun.
Register today for 1/10 chance to win food and drink at the spacious and beautiful Irish pub, Mahony and Sons at False Creek.
Can we find anything meaningful in today’s entertainment and from classical books, that can help young professionals live fully, embrace life and liberty, and thrive in a culture that is rapidly changing on all fronts?
Don’t miss our guest young adult panelists:
Douglas Pham + Joseph San Jose.
Our guest moderator, Dr. Christopher Morrissey will help us think about various themes that will help young professionals flourish in their lives and career.
Christopher S. Morrissey teaches logic and philosophy at Trinity Western University. He studied Classics at the University of British Columbia, and at Simon Fraser University he wrote his Ph.D. dissertation on René Girard. He is a managing editor of The American Journal of Semiotics. His books are Hesiod: Theogony / Works and Days (Talonbooks, 2012), and The Way of Logic (Nanjing Normal University Press, 2018).
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we asked our staff to recommend favourite Talon books that they felt contributed to the advancement of women and to the feminist literary canon.Tuesday February 6, 2018 in Meta-Talon
