Take Part in Foreign Affairs Without a Passport at the Hudson Library

A China Coast Guard ship (top) and a Philippine supply boat engage in a stand off as the Philippine boat attempts to reach the Second Thomas Shoal, a remote South China Sea a reef claimed by both countries, on March 29, 2014. The Philippine ship finally slipped past the Chinese blockade to reach Second Thomas Shoal, where a handful of Filipino marines are stationed on a Navy vessel that has been grounded there since 1999 to assert their nation's sovereignty.

Great Decisions is a PBS multi-platform project that parses the LeBron James TV show in which the Cavs star ultimately went to Miami.

Okay, no it isn’t. Tied in with the broadcast Great Decisions in Foreign Policy, Great Decisions serves as a basis for the largest discussion group on foreign affairs in the USA. The Hudson Library is the local HQ for that formidable piece of global civics, and it carries “briefing books,” short essays about each meeting topic, just for participants.

Moderating the first monthly Great Decisions of 2017 is Dr. Keith K. Lepak of Youngstown State University, who leads the talk after the viewing of a 30-minute documentary.

Admission is free and open to all. Who knows, after this you might even qualify for an ambassadorship? Or, considering the current gang, be overqualified.
