Rediscover the art of making a point without making an enemy during Dinner and a Fight Dialogue on Tuesday, April 19, at Kirtland Community Center.

This special event will be led by Ted Wetzel, author of Is America Broken? He’ll show how everyone can discuss polarizing issues and have different opinions without demonizing people who disagree.

Wetzel will demonstrate the 5-chair method of civil discourse where five audience members with different opinions can have productive discussions on controversial subjects.

Dinner and a Fight Dialogue is hosted by Kirtland Public Library and Mentor Public Library. The event costs $20 to attend, and that ticket price includes a meal. Doors will open at 5:45 p.m., dinner will be served at 6 p.m., and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. The Kirtland Community Center is located at 7900 Euclid Chardon Road, Kirtland.

Come for dinner, and stay for the dialogue. Registration is encouraged, though limited tickets may be available at the door. RSVP here. Those with questions can call Mentor Public Library at 440-255-8811 or Kirtland Public Library at 440-256-READ (7323).
