The Philosopher’s Lunch Table: Mental Clarity


Join Marietta McCarty on Saturday, Feb. 22 for a sort of Philosopher’s Lunch Table featuring South American food to toast the chapter set in Brazil in The Philosopher’s Table.

The Commonwealth Restaurant and Skybar in Charlottesville, with its innovative cuisine and festive atmosphere, is the perfect setting for February philosophizing and socializing.

The luncheon runs from 1-3 p.m. The menu includes salad, chili grilled chicken, herb grilled portobello mushroom, wheatberry salad, yukon potato gratin, roasted yellow squast, chocolate bread pudding and coconut custard.

Marietta’s talk is scheduled for 1:45, an interactive conversation about the merits and the whereabouts of Mental Clarity, February’s topic in the book.

The cost is $35 per person. Space is limited. Call Commonwealth today to make reservations at (434) 202-7728 or contact [email protected]. A credit card is required.

McCarty, New York Times best seller and award-winning author of The Philosopher’s Table: How to Start Your Philosophy Dinner Club – Monthly Conversation, Music and Recipes, How Philosophy Can Save Your Life: 10 Ideas That Matter Most, and Little Big Minds: Sharing Philosophy with Kids, will also have all three books available for sale and signing. McCarty taught at Piedmont Virginia Community College before retiring in Charlottesville to pursue writing full time. She is originally from the Richmond area.
