Great Decisions at the Library - 2021

Great Decisions at the Library is sponsored by the Bainbridge Public Library with funding support from the Bainbridge Island Friends of the Library and a generous donation in memory of Louise Brody Weissman.

Great Decisions at the Library  2021
Starts September 11, 2021!

Now in its sixteenth year, Great Decisions at the Library is part of a nation-wide, non-partisan program of the Foreign Policy Association intended to broaden public involvement in foreign affairs. While enjoying coffee and pastries, Great Decisions at the Library participants first view a 30-minute Foreign Policy Association DVD on the topic under consideration and then engage in a discussion lead by an informed moderator. 

Finally - The 2021 Great Decisions at the Library is in the works.  We are planning an abridged, 5-topic series that will begin Saturday, September 11.  Bethany Lutheran Church is cautiously optimistic that it will be able to host us inside the church.  If not, we will resort to Zoom.

Here's the schedule.  Save the dates and keep your fingers crossed!
 
Global Supply Chains and U.S National Security - September 11
The Two Koreas - September 18
Brexit: Taking Stock and Looking Ahead - September 26
Race to the Arctic: The New Cold War - October 2
Persian Gulf Security - October 9
