What is a tertulia? A tertulia, of the Latin American and Iberian tradition, can be described as a literary and artistic social gathering or a philosophy cafe where people get together to talk about ideas.

Tertulias in Fredericton this fall will feature riveting speakers on some of the big thinkers and artists who have shaped our world. The tertulias will combine words, music, poetry, readings, art and visuals. The tertulias will take place on Wednesdays at 7:30pm at Wilser’s Room, The Capital Complex (366 Queen St.) in Fredericton.
