Join us as we partner again with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute of the University of Minnesota, Global Minnesota and the Foreign Policy Association for an online version of our annual Great Decisions series on the most critical issues facing America each year. Study the issues and then join the discussions led by expert speakers. Ten copies of the Briefing Book for this series are available for checkout at the Ramsey County Library, through the generosity of Global Minnesota.
