By the fall of 2022, Iran was in a state of turmoil due to widespread protests against government-enforced wearing of the hijab, a failing economy, an ineffective new president, and the looming succession of the country’s leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. Abroad, renewal of the Iran nuclear deal seemed doubtful and tensions remain high between Iran, Israel, and
Arab states. Many Iranians have lost hope of a better future, and the country seems at a crossroads. How should the United States deal with it?
This fall we are excited to present new topics from global, national and area issues with information to keep us informed and prepared as family members and engaged citizens. We will be continuing the Great Decision Series of programs prepared by the Foreign Policy Association. Briefing books for this series will be provided to those who register for the
Great Decisions Programs, with the expectation that those attending will have read each program’s briefing before the presentation. If you would like to attend a Lifelong Learning program remotely, please inform us upon registration and a Zoom meeting ID will be provided to you.
The Friends of the Charlevoix Public Library, with the generous support of Lynne and Mason Rosenthal present: Fall 2023 Lifelong Learning Program. The Lifelong Learning Program was initiated in 2016 as a means of providing an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of topics and issues of broad interest that may impact us all.
