4:00 PM - 5:00 PM    Stories for our Time: a Zoom discussion group - Stories for our Time: a Zoom discussion group
Short stories are “Songs and cries that reveal the range and ways of human character,” says writer Lorrie Moore. If ever there were a time that produced cries and needed songs, we’re in it. So we’ve come up with a series of stories to read and talk about. They range from the shocking to the everyday to the wry, from Ursula Le Guin to Jhumpa Lahiri. All address, in some way, the issues we talk about every day.We’ve limited the “class size” to 18, so that there will be space for everyone to speak, because we want this to be a genuine discussion. While we all have long experience with literature, none of us is an expert on these stories. We’ll do what book clubs do: learn together.The meetings are free of charge, and will be offered on Thursdays from 4:00-5:00 pm, from July 16 through August 20, 2020. (PVSC members get first option.)Register online or call Sheila Krautkremer at 207-659-1359, or email her: smksenior2020@gmail.com.7/16 - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, “The Headstrong Historian,” and “The Danger of a          Single Story.”7/23 - George Saunders, “Love Letter” and “The Semplica-Girls Diary.”7/30- Kate Walbert, “Do Something” and Caitlin Horrocks, “The Sleep.”8/6 - Karen Russell, “St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves” and Jhumpa Lahiri,         “Mrs. Sen’s.”8/13 - Toni Morrison, “Recitatif” and Ursula Le Guin, “The Ones Who Walk Away from          Omelas.”8/20 - Alice Munro, “The Bear Came Over the Mountain.”Once you are registered, you will be emailed the PDF copies of the stories.

10:00 AM - 11:30 AM    SUPREME COURT IMPORTANT DECISIONS, PART 2 with SOL GOLDMAN - Sol Goldman - Important decisions by the Supreme Court Part 2
Penobscot Valley Senior College  One Day EventsTuesday, July 21 &Tuesday, July 28July 21:  Three Liberal TriumphsChief Justice John Roberts joined the liberals on the Supreme Court to block President Trump’s rescission of DACA, to block a Louisiana law that would make abortion extremely hard to get in Louisiana, and (along with Gorsuch) to read the federal anti-discrimination law to protect LGBTQ employees.  Join PVSC and Sol Goldman for this one-day event to explore the scope of these decisions, which may be less than meets the eye. July 28:  What else is there?We’ll learn how the Court will answer the following questions:  If a Maine town has no public high school, state law says that the town will pay for an alternative school, but not a religious school.  Is that constitutional? Speaking of religion, can every teacher in a religious school be denied protection against discrimination because they are “ministers”? And how about congress or a state prosecutor getting those Trump financial records? Can the President keep it all hidden?  Join PVSC and Sol Goldman for this one-day event to explore the final decisions of this year’s Supreme Court term.  Please join us on Zoom for the condensed versions of what we would have heard from Sol had we been able to hold in-person classes this spring. You will receive a receipt of confirmation after registering, and a zoom link two days prior to each class.
