Fans of the New Yorker Magazine! Latham Library has something new for you!
A generous donor recently gifted Latham Library digital access to the New Yorker. The library will use this gift to host an article discussion group. The format will be similar to a book discussion group. Wide ranging topics from current events to more entertaining pursuits will be chosen once a month for the hour long discussion. The library host will faciltate the hour. If possible, a guest who has experience or expertise on the selected subject will join the group to help deepen the conversation. This group will meet on the last Wednesday evening of the month on Zoom.
Participants will need to register in advance on a first come, first serve basis. He or she will receive a confirmation email that includes a Zoom link to the meeting, a link to the selected New Yorker magazine article that may or may not also contain an audio version of the article, and a PDF of the article that one can download and print at home. If you do not have access to a printer, you can call Peter Blodgett at 785-4361 for a copy.
At this time, we can only register 8 participants on the library’s New Yorker subscription. However, if you are already a New Yorker magazine subscriber, you are welcome to join in what hopefully will be an interesting hour.
Our very first article is “Can Our Ballots be Both Secret and Secure?,” by Sue Halpern. This is one of a few articles featured on the New Yorker’s series, The Future of Democracy. Bill Keegan, from the Board of Civil Authority, is our guest for this discussion. This inaugural group will meet on Wednesday, September 30, from 5 to 6 pm on Zoom.
