Course Description 

We focus on international events and concerns, addressing United States issues only as they relate to the rest of the world.

An invited speaker or a member of the group will do a presentation for about 40 minutes, and then take questions and comments for perhaps 20 minutes.

We take a break, and then discuss items of interest that members have brought to this in-person meeting. In this way, we hope to increase our exposure to high-quality sources of news and information and to expand our appreciation of the importance of global affairs.

 All members are invited to have a news clipping or summary of an item of interest.
