Thursday, April 11, 1 p.m.
Join Active Minds for an exploration of how the West was opened and won. We'll tell the story from a variety of perspectives--from the early explorers who ventured into the unknown to the fortune seekers who raced to the Gold Rush. We'll also include the often brutal elements of what was known at the time as "Manifest Destiny” including conflicts with Native Americans as well as Spanish Mexico, all of which added significant territory to the United States.

Active Minds: French Cuisine
Thursday, April 25, 1 p.m.
Over 2000 years ago, the Roman Empire expanded north to incorporate the agriculturally abundant region of the Celtic Gauls. Thus began the rich culinary history of the land that would come to be known as France. Join Active Minds as we embark on a four-course exploration of the long and flavorful history of the people who gave us the word “restaurant”.
