Great Decisions, sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association, is the largest discussion program addressing world affairs in communities across the United States. Our library is proud to be sponsoring our fourth year of participation in the Great Decisions Program.
This year, nine topics have been selected for discussion. The Foreign Policy Association provides a Great Decisions Briefing Book if participants choose to read articles in advance, and each program begins with a video presentation outlining the issues of the evening’s topic. After the short video, a facilitator provides insight and additional details and also facilitates audience discussion.
Please visit the Great Decisions page for event dates and topics.
