Gnu's Room Events

Here's the latest from the Gnu's Room. For any who don't know, the Gnu's Room is a local used book store located on Gay Street next to the Amsterdam Cafe.  I's only a block away from campus and has some really interesting selections.  Anyways, here are their upcoming events as found in their e-newsletter:

Wednesday, January 27th, 5:00 p.m. - Philosophy Roundtable Discussion

The Philosophy Club resumes its monthly meetings at the Gnu's Room
with a panel presentation and discussion of the topic, "The Problem of
Evil." The panel, consisting of three faculty members and three
students from the Auburn University Philosophy Department, will
present differing viewpoints on the topic, and after a short break
will open the discussion for audience participation. Everyone is
invited to attend.

Friday, January 29th, 7:00 p.m. - Music by Kristen Hines

Local acoustic musician, Kristen Hines will perform at the Gnu's Room.
Hines will perform some new songs as well as some of her other works.
There is no admission fee; however, donations will be greatly
appreciated by the artist.
