Great Decisions discussion group


The Vineyard Haven library hosts the Great Decisions group, which will meet for eight sessions on Thursday evenings at 7 pm, beginning April 4.

Great Decisions is a national program bringing together interested individuals who want an opportunity to learn and participate in the foreign policy decisionmaking process. According to a press release from the library, each year, the Foreign Policy Association (FPA) publishes the Great Decisions briefing book, a well-researched annual publication covering eight timely global topics to be read by group participants in order to prepare for each discussion. At each meeting, participants will view a 30-minute documentary film on that week’s topic, to be followed by a moderated discussion. The first topic is Refugees and Global Migration.

Register at the library or online at to participate. This year, a limited number of discounted briefing books are available for purchase at the library for $25, payable to the Friends of the Vineyard Haven Library. Copies of the briefing book are also available for in-library use at no charge.
