The Longreads Club is a bi-weekly program hosted by WorldOregon's Young Professionals group. We discuss a long-form article focused on a global topic each meeting. It's like a book club, but the reading material is shorter. Rather than skim headlines, we dive deep and learn from each other to better understand world events. No membership or registration required - but it's nice to know how many are coming, so RSVPs are encouraged. Read the article and join our discussion!
WHO THIS GROUP IS FOR
Although this event is organized by the Young Professionals Steering Committee at WorldOregon, it’s open to everyone. You don't need to identify as "young" nor "professional" to attend. In fact, it’s better to have a variety of backgrounds and perspectives.
