The Longreads Club is a twice-monthly program hosted by WorldOregon's Young Professionals group where we discuss a long-form article focused on global topics. It's like a book club, but the reading material is shorter. Rather than skim the headlines, we are trying to dive deep and learn from each other to gain a better understanding of world events. No membership or registration required - although it's nice to know who's coming so RSVPs are encouraged. Read the article, show up, and join the discussion!
