Reading John Franke's forthcoming book

Well here are the details: We get the chance to read and comment on John Franke's forthcoming book: Manifold Witness: The Plurality of Truth. We have an unedited version in a pdf that we can use (only) for our cohort discussion. Due to his teaching and travelling schedule, John is disappointed that he will not be able to be join us. He is eager to receive our notes and feedback. Just e-mail and we'll send you the pdf. We will gather to discuss the book and our feedback on Monday October 29th at 8pm in the Federal Hill neighborhood of Baltimore. The address is: 602 E. Fort Ave., 21230. The space is a rowhouse which we lease. It is right next door to Hilltop Carry-Out if you need any food. Parking is on the street. I look forward to seeing you there, Tim P.S.--The band The Cobalt Season (musicians Ryan and Holly Sharp) will be playing a concert in Baltimore on Saturday night Nov. 3rd at 8pm. Admission is: $10.

After an extended summer vacation, the Baltimore Emergent Village Cohort is coming back to life. Here are a few updates: 1. Heather Kirk-Davidoff is going to co-facilitate the cohort with me (Tim Hartman). Thank you, Heather! 2. The cohort will start meeting in Baltimore city 3. Our next gathering will take place in late October. We have the opportunity to read and provide feedback on John Franke's upcoming book: Manifold Witness: The Plurality of Truth which is being published by Abingdon Press. At the least we will be able to provide written comments before John makes his final edits. Perhaps, John will join us in person. We are waiting to hear back from John before confirming a date. If you have any questions or ideas, send an e-mail to emergentbaltimore at and we'll get it. Tim
