Talk on unrest in the Middle East set

— Revolts and revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and Syria have been a news focus for the last seven months. An opportunity to understand more about the origins, development, and prospects of these movements will take place Sunday, Aug. 21 at 10:30 a.m. (come early for coffee or drinks) at the North Creek United Methodist Church on Main Street across from the bank.

Dr. Byron Shafer, a seasonal resident of North River, will deliver a Power Point presentation on this topic. Dr. Shafer holds a Ph.D. from Harvard University, and is an emeritus professor of Fordham University in New York City. For fifteen years he was co-director of Fordham’s Middle East Studies Program. Discussion will follow the talk. The public is invited. Admission is free. Coffee and cookies will conclude the gathering.
