For the first time, Reading Public Library will be joining venues around Berks County to present the “Great Decisions” Discussion Group Series, bringing conversations on the most critical issues facing America today to a city venue. The following topics will be presented during this inaugural season:
The U.S. and Mexico: Partnership Tested, Wednesday, March 27
Cyber Conflict and Geopolitics, Wednesday, April 24
Refugees and Global Migration, Wednesday, May 29
The discussion group will meet from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Reading Public Library Foundation building, 113 S. 4th St., Reading. Light lunch will be served.
Topics are presented through a briefing book, video presentation and facilitated discussion. The $30 registration fee includes a briefing book with expert papers on all eight of the 2019 topics and participants can attend discussion groups on any of the current topics being presented throughout our community. The Great Decisions series is supported by the World Affairs Council of Reading.
Sherry Cameron, a member of RPL’s Board of Trustees and the World Affairs Council of Reading’s Board of Director’s stated the following about this new venue, “We are very pleased to be expanding the reach of these vital conversations and believe that this series fits with the library’s ongoing goal of promoting informed citizenry.”
