The Longreads Club is a twice-monthly program hosted by WorldOregon's Young Professionals group. Join us for Longreads Club where we discuss a long-form article focused on global topics every other week. 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!

NOTE: Although this event is organized by the Young Professionals Steering Committee at WorldOregon, it is open to everyone. You don't need to identify as young nor professional to attend. In fact, it is better for the discussion to have a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives.
