LEWISTON — This Saturday, May 6, from 6:30 to 10 p.m., the Lewiston Public Library will host a coffee-house style community gathering in LPL’s Callahan Hall. Food, music, and conversationwill be part of the mix.

The music will feature Hadithi Adan Abdula and Michael Krapovicky. Between musical sets the topic, “What is the rightful role of government in shaping the future of our community?” will be up for discussion.

The MakeShift Coffee House is a place for people with different views to exchange and consider diverse perspectives. It’s not about persuading or converting each other, but simply hearing one another and understanding where others are coming from. 

The conversations will be facilitated by Maine consultant Craig Freshley who developed the makeshift coffee house concept. This Lewiston event is being cosponsored by Lewiston Rocks [Facebook page], Project Tipping Point and LPL.

Entertainment will be provided by Hadithi Adan Abdula, above, and Michael Krapovicky.
