U.S. and Global Issues Book Group
Read and discuss nonfiction works on U.S. and global issues, and some history. Topics will include some familiar to participants of the Great Decisions programs, but will not focus on political agenda nonfiction.
The group meets the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Highlands Ranch Library Reading Lounge.
