Current Affairs Discussion Group

Thursday, October 11, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Members only—free. Registration deadline: October 9. Please scroll down to register or call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

Join fellow members of the Village for a roundtable discussion of three Editor’s Pick articles featured in The Economist. The articles will be published and shared one week prior to the discussion on Thursday, October 4. Don’t have a subscription to The Economist? You will still be able to read three free articles per week (you may register for the Editor’s Pick newsletter in advance). After reading the articles in advance, each attendee will be asked to share their own thoughts and questions, and a moderator will be designated to facilitate (but not lead) the group as they discuss the content of each article. Attendees may enjoy a self-hosted dinner after the discussion (restaurant TBD).


Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
