Do you like Apricot Martinis? Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Albert Camus did — and we’ll be inspired by their Existentialist Cafe* as we share our experiences, knowledge, and wisdom about how we might become more autonomous, aware, and true to ourselves.

*Inspired by At the Existentialist Café: Freedom, Being and Apricot Cocktails, by Sarah Bakewell. Cartoon is of Sartre and de Beauvoir.
