|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Thursday, repeating until May 31, 2022

Moderators: Rick Gold, Dick Suttor

The Algonquin Round Table was a group of New York City writers, critics, actors, and wits. Gathering initially as part of a practical joke, members of "The Vicious Circle,” as they dubbed themselves, met for lunch each day at the Algonquin Hotel from 1919 until roughly 1929. At these luncheons, they engaged in wisecracks, wordplay, and witticisms that, through the newspaper columns of Round Table members, were disseminated across the country.

ILR’s Hybrid (in person or ZOOM, your choice) Round Table is a forum for discussion of topics of mutual interest, particularly of current events. Participants bring their interests, opinions and expertise to the table and engage in spirited, though respectful, debate. Topics are determined jointly by participants, who must be registered to participate in this class.

Class limit: 30 (MPR is limited to 25 participants)
