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
Postponed but still planned for this year!

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. 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are postponing the 2021 Great Decisions at the Library series until it is safe to meet in person, with appropriate social distancing and other safety measures, in Bethany Lutheran Church. The topics are good for the entire year, so we are aiming for some time in the fall. If not, there’s always Zoom!
In the meantime, here are the 2021 topics. If you know of a local expert on any of the topics, please contact us at .
Global Supply Chains and U.S National Security
The Future of Persian Gulf security
Brexit: Taking Stock and Looking Ahead
The Coldest War: Toward a Return to Great Power Competition in the Arctic?
