The Longreads Club is a bi-weekly program hosted by WorldOregon's Young Professionals group. Each session, we discuss a long-form article focused on a global topic. It's like a book club, but the reading material is shorter. Rather than skim the headlines, we dive deeper 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 and join the discussion!
