Former T&S guestblogger, Naomi Frandsen has started a semi-formal discussion group for Capital-area Mormons. There first meeting will be this Saturday. Here is the announcement from Naomi:
Announcing a Mormon Discussion Series in the greater Washington, D.C. area
The Saturday Evening Discussion Series will hold the first of its monthly events this Saturday, October 15, from 6-7 p.m. in Pentagon City, VA. This largely Mormon-themed discussion group has invited T&S’s Nate Oman to be its inaugural speaker, and heâ€™ll be giving a critical overview of the Bloggernacle from humble eginnings to Marauding Marsupial, speaking to the role such blogs play in Mormon community and intellectual inquiry. Future presenters include Katie Blakesley, Matt Bowman, Robert Ricks, and others from the greater D.C. area, speaking on topics from the Church’s political activism in the 1920s to Mormonism and the Middle East and why Mormon girls love hip hop. All are invited. If youâ€™re interested in finding out more (like, for example, the address), please e-mail n dot frandsen24 at yahoo dot com. Many thanks to Nate for being our first presenter.
