Okanagan Regional Library initiates idea exchange

A new forum has been started to exchange ideas at the Vernon library

A new forum has been started to exchange ideas at the Vernon library.

The Vernon Branch of the Okanagan Regional Library is pleased to announce the launch of The Idea Exchange, a regular forum where community members can join together to discover new thoughts, debate topics and share ideas.

The first forum takes place Sept. 26. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the film starts at 7, with discussion to follow.

The Library and The Centre for Inquiry are co-presenting the documentary film The Revisionaries. The film showcases how public education has become the latest battleground in a new wave of cultural, religious and ideological clashes, with local Texas education board members advancing agendas of Creationism and other religious issues in public schools. This documentary highlights how their tactics have had the effect of rewriting key tenets of U.S. democracy and are affecting educational policies at the national level – for generations to come.

The event is free of charge and everyone is welcome.
