Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea
by Barbara Demick
Monday, 5/21 at 7:00pm
In 1947, George F. Kennan published his famous "X" article in the journal Foreign Affairs, outlining his containment doctrine and his long-term prognosis for the Soviet Union. Dr. Bruce Cumings will do the same for North Korea, arguing that containing that leadership will be even easier than it was with the USSR, since the North has no expansionist goals beyond the Korean peninsula. Such a strategy requires patience, and the conviction that over the long run, North Korea will evolve internally and cease to be a problem. Dr. Bruce Cumings is a professor of Korean history at the University of Chicago.
Tuesday, 5/1 at 1:30pm
Quilt expert Marge Edwards will explain many of the traditions that have followed the art of quilting through hundreds of years-each with its own story to tell. For example, what was behind the custom of a bride needing 13 quilts when she married? Quilts will be on display to admire.
Resiliency: The Strength to Overcome
Thursday, 5/24 at 7:00pm
"No matter what you are facing, you have the strength to overcome it." After studying the most resilient people in the world for over a decade, Chad Hinkle has learned this to be true. In a one hour interactive talk, Mr. Hinkle will help you use the skills and tools of these extremely resilient people to build your own resiliency. Entertaining and informative, this is an experience that will help you be stronger and feel more fulfilled.
