The Question

"To be or not to be, that is the question."

Except that it's not. Not on this occasion, anyway. No, what interests us at the upcoming salon on February 9th is the question of the question itself.

What kind of questions open up conversation and conversely (no pun intended) close it down? What kind of questions do you like being asked or perhaps more importantly, not being asked? How do politeness and the art of asking questions intersect? And what of a traditional etiquette rule that proposes that to ask any question is a breach of proper social conduct?

These questions and more will be explored as we turn the question - both as content and conversational form - inside out next Thursday evening. Is it too much to ask that you let us know if you'll be there? We hope not!
