Great Decisions Series set to take place at Wilbraham Public Library

Date: 11/2/2009

WILBRAHAM Registration has begun for the Great Decisions Discussion Group, meeting at the Wilbraham Public Library beginning in January. The topics from the 2010 series, selected by the Foreign Policy Association, are "Special Envoys," "Preventing Genocide," "Global Crime," "U.S.-China Security Relations," "Global Financial Crisis," "Russia and its Neighbors," "The Persian Gulf" and "Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution."

The Briefing Books cost $18 to purchase and can be pre-ordered from the library by Dec. 15. Checks are to be made payable to the Wilbraham Friends of the Library. There will also be a Briefing Book available for in-library use for participants who may not wish to order their own copy.

The series will again be facilitated by members of the Friends of the Library. Responding to the feedback from last year's participants, the meeting times will be extended to 90 minutes. Sessions will take place on Wednesdays, Jan. 27 through March 17, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

Great Decisions Groups meet all over the country in private homes, libraries and other venues to discuss selected topics in the area of current affairs. Participants have the ability to have their opinions tallied in a National Opinion Poll, which then gets sent to Congress.

This is a wonderful program to learn more about what is happening in the world and to have your voice heard by people who make the decisions.
