Current Affairs Discussion Group

Thursday, September 13, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Members only—free. To register, please 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, September 6. Don’t have a subscription to The Economist? You will still be able to read three free articles per week. To register for the Editor’s Pick newsletter in advance, click here.

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. This is a new Village program, which means attendees who come to this first meeting will dictate the content and format moving forward.

Following the discussion, attendees are welcome to continue the conversation and enjoy a self-hosted dinner at Basil Leaf, located directly across the street from the Village office. As a part of the Village VIP program, members who dine from 5:00–6:30 PM at Basil Leaf will receive a 20% discount .
