Discovery Cafe is a series of public lectures given by experts in their fields to the community of Blackburn Hamlet, hosted by BHCC. It runs from September to November, January to May on the last Friday of each month, 7:30pm-9pm. Each evening consists of a 45 minute talk followed by a Q & A period. Desserts and coffee/tea are provided. There is no charge although small donations are always appreciated. 

On May 31, guest speaker Dr. Sonia Chiasson, Associate Professor in the School of Computer Science at Carleton University and Research Chair, will close off our 2018/2019 season with a talk about computer security, including lots of practical advice.
