Great Decisions Lecture Series

Friday January 27 2012


From the depths of the oceans to cyberspace, from our neighbor to the south to the Pacific Rim- you will not want to miss these topics of the 2012 Great Decisions Lecture Series that  continues every Thursday afternoon in February.

Experts in these areas will speak on challenges facing the world that the Foreign Policy Association sees as some of the most significant and far-reaching for 2012. This year's talks will feature State of the Oceans, Drug Wars in Mexico, Indonesia and Cybersecurity.

The lectures will take place in the Lynchburg Public Library Community Room and are open to the public free of charge. The presentations are from 3 to 4 p.m. with light refreshments beginning at 2:30. If the Lynchburg Public Schools close due to inclement weather, the talk for that day will be canceled and rescheduled for the first Thursday in March if possible. The Lynchburg Branch of the AAUW, the League of Women Voters of Lynchburg, the YWCA, and the Lynchburg Public Library sponsor the talks.
