Light in August, a series of conversations, is designed to shed light on subjects of both current and enduring interest in a friendly, informal setting. All programs are free and open to the public and will be held at the Alley Kitchen & Coffee House (formerly Outrageous) at 515 Center Street in Scranton. Programs begin at 6pm with a happy hour, continue with a 7pm presentation, and conclude with a guided discussion.
