The Bainbridge Public Library hosts a monthly discussion group. It
meets on the 4th Friday of the month from 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. The Salon is for men
and women who enjoy stimulating conversation and wish to learn from others in
civil dialogue. Topics will vary, but the mode will be general interest
subjects that impact the public. The Salon conversations will be energizing,
fun, and thought provoking. Next up is:
Midterm Elections: Déjà vu or a New Direction?
Every two years,
Americans have the privilege of going to the polls and voting for local and
national leaders. How we vote depends in part upon our view of the current
environment. How would you answer the question, "Are things worse than ever or
better than ever?” What do you base your opinion upon when you think about the
state of our nation? Optimist or pessimist, do you believe we’re in a prolonged
period of inaction or poised to move forward with changes in leadership? Let’s
talk and listen to each other.Join us on Friday, October 24 at 1:30 at the Bainbridge
Public Library as we discuss our expectations surrounding the midterm
elections. Here are two readings that may help spur your thinking on the topic.
