Oregon Humanities’ Think & Drink program distills the best of higher intellectual discourse with a good ol’ campfire story feel. It’s a conversation series featuring novelists, journalist, historians, political influences, and thinkers who lead proactive conversations about topics critical to Oregonians. These public events are hosted around the state, and encourage folks to come together, have a drink, listen, learn, and share ideas.
