Summer with LLAIC


Only two weeks left to take advantage of our FREE Summer Session classes. This is a drop-in program. Come when you can, no registration necessary. Here are the offerings for this Wednesday, August 8.

10:00 - 11:15  New Yorker Roundtable. The story we will read for Wednesday, August 8 is "The First World" by Joseph O'Neill. It is featured in the July 2,  2018, issue of the magazine or can be read online by clicking on this link. There is an interesting interview with the author here.  The discussion will be facilitated by Alice Freedman.

(On the last week of the program, August 15, we will read "I Walk Between the Raindrops" by T. Coraghessan Boyle, available in the July 30 issue or online here.  Bonnie Lass will lead that discussion.)

11:30 - 12:45  Current Events with Marty Nichols. Always something surprising and controversial happening these days, lots to discuss.

12:45 - 1:15  Lunch and chat with friends. Pizza is available for $2/slice as well as water, coffee and tea - or bring your own.

1:15 - 2:30  Another provocative TED talk with Mary Mansfield. We will watch a brief video and then discuss it.

Enjoy the summer session by catching one of the programs or coming for the whole day. We hope to see you there.
