Begun by the Foreign Policy Association in 1954, the Great Decisions program is designed to encourage debate and discussion of the important global issues of our time. The format of the program is intended to promote thoughtful discourse, and to bring people together to express their ideas and opinions, and learn from others.
This course will be led by Nancy Powell. Each week will have assigned readings from books that can be checked out by attendees either before or during the class. While attendees needn't attend every class, it is encouraged! Contact the library to find out what each week's discussion will be and to pick up your series textbook.

An inspiring and creative memoir, “Second Chances: From Truck Stop Waitress to Psychotherapist” offers a model in which new beginnings are possible if you trust your intuition and follow your heart.

Ever wonder what happened to Ebenezer Scrooge and the Cratchit family after the events of Charles Dickens' 1843 classic tale, "A Christmas Carol?" Clayton, Delaware author Paul Mast not only wondered, but brought forth Dickens' story with his 2016 novel, "A Cratchit Family Christmas."
By incorporating the Cratchit family into the life of a transformed and benevolent philanthropist, Mast weaves new storylines that offer fresh views into how Scrooge's Christmas Eve transformation profoundly affected each member of the Cratchit family.
Join us for an entertaining 60-minute, one-man performance where author Paul Mast will dramatically bring these beloved characters to life. Admission will be free, but a donation of at least one canned or dry good to the Cape Henlopen Food Basket at the door will be appreciated.
