Mideast revolts subject of talk

— A program focusing on observations on Mideast revolutions and unrest is to be presented by Fordham professor Byron Shafer at 10:30 a.m. Aug. 21 in the North Creek United Methodist Church, Main St.

The focus of the free presentation is to be on the recent revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain, and Syria. Event organizers say the presentation is an opportunity to understand more about the origins, development, and prospects of these movements. Shafer is a seasonal resident of North River. For 15 years, he was co-director of Fordham’s Middle East Studies program.
