L701 Summer 2020 Hot Topics
Wednesdays, 9:40–11:05, June 24–July 29
Instructor: Robert Cather, Cathy Faraj
Class limit: 40
Interesting articles are published every week in prominent periodicals but are often overlooked as breaking news dominates. Weekly discussions include topics taken from the most respected publications, such as The Economist and The New Yorker, along with others that feature unusual story lines. A printed article and its internet source will be distributed a week in advance of each session. Occasionally discussion of a breaking news story will be introduced by highlighting the historical background or location. Expect to see a New Yorker cartoon on the projection screen before the main article is discussed. Discussion can get quite lively; join us and see.
Robert Cather is a retired retail executive who worked within the branches and buying offices of two prominent metro New York City department stores.
Cathy Faraj has been a member of this group for many years. She is a retired Fairfax County teacher who enjoys discussing with others interesting topics that keep our minds active!
