Breaking Bread with Philosophy - An Update

When Marietta McCarty wrote her most recent book, she envisioned people using it as a guide for dinnertime conversation in people’s homes.

But enthusiastic fans are taking the book’s suggestions much further.

We consider the possibilities as the author of  The Philosopher’s Table makes a return visit to our studios.
