As long as you’re within earshot, any perch can be a good one at the Hall of Philosophy — here, Chautauquans sit and stand just outside the venue during Thursday’s Interfaith Lecture with journalism scholar Diane Winston and The Atlantic’s James Fallows. The crowd at the Hall of Philosophy often spills over into St. Paul’s Grove, the steps of the hall, several front porches and even a private fire escape. OLIVIA SUN/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER
