Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year. Participants will view a related dvd and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.

A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 7 through March 28, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

Dealing with cyber conflict will require new ways of looking at 21st century warfare. Is the United States prepared to respond to such threats?
