What people are saying about Tilde Cafe

  • What a wonderful resource you are providing to the global community - I don't live in CT but have been following your website and activities for the last year. Please keep up this effort.
  • This most recent presentation (3/20/2010) is the second lecture I've attended. I will say that the Branford library seems like the better choice in sheer terms of size for accommodating a crowd. Both lectures were wonderful, and I look especially forward to the discussion on dark matter/energy.
  • I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to attend the lecture at Blackstone Library given by Amanda Folsom. I am sharing what I learned there with my Wallingford Adult Education students.
