‘Great Decisions’ discussions set



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Great Decisions 2015 discussion series begins at the Southwest Harbor Public Library on Monday, Feb. 2, at 5 p.m.

The Bass Harbor Memorial Library collaborated on the first Great Decision series in 2014, and it was such a success that the libraries decided to offer the programs again.

“The 2014 program engaged a group with a wide variety of experiences and viewpoints,” said Mike Hays, the Great Decisions program coordinator. “A great mixture of ages and backgrounds helped inform lively and thought-provoking observations. I think this year’s program will be even better.”

The programs for the 2015 session are: Russia and the Near Abroad, a Community Event of the Camden Conference; Privacy in the Digital Age; Sectarianism in the Middle East; India Changes Course; U.S. Policy Toward Africa; Syria’s Refugee Crisis; Human Trafficking in the 21st Century; and Brazil in Metamorphosis.

Eight sessions are scheduled to alternate between library locations. Each session will covering a different topic and be discussed by program participants. Participants will receive study guides for each session, and a video presentation will precede each discussion.

The program is free, but pre-registration is required to ensure that participants have their study guides. Register in person at the Southwest Harbor Public Library or the Bass Harbor Memorial Library, by calling the libraries at 244-7065 or 244-3792, or by email at [email protected]
