This week's discussion topic from the briefing book:
Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future? by Ronald J. Bee
Nuclear weapons have not gone away, and the Trump administration has brought a new urgency, if not a new approach, to dealing with them. The President has met with Vladimir Putin as the New Start Treaty with Russia comes up for renewal in 2021, the first presidential summit ever with Kim Jong-un occurred to discuss denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula, and President Trump has decertified the Obama nuclear deal with Iran. To what degree should past nuclear talks guide future U.S. nuclear arms control negotiations? Can the art of the deal apply to stabilizing our nuclear future?
Information, schedule and purchase of the $30 workbook took place at first meeting.
Book and Pub Club: This Body's No Big Enough for Both of Us

Tuesday, March 19
7:00 – 9:00pm

The Book and Pub Club is the book club for 20- to 30- somethings that meets at the bars and restaurants in Nyack to discuss books over food and drinks.
A brilliantly subversive and comic thriller celebrating noir detectives, Die Hard, Fast & Furious, and the worst case of sibling rivalry.
In a dingy office in Fisherman's Wharf, the glass panel in the door bears the names of A. Kimrean and Z. Kimrean. Private Eyes. Behind the door there is only one desk, one chair, one scrawny androgynous P.I. in a tank top and skimpy waistcoat. A.Z., as they are collectively known, are twin brother and sister. A.Z. have been locked in mortal battle since they were in utero...which is tricky because they, very literally, share one single body. That's right. One body, two pilots. A mind-blowing, gender-bending, genre-smashing romp through the entire pantheon of action and noir. It is also a bold, tautly crafted novel about family, being weird, and claiming your place in your own crazy story.
Join librarians, Katie and Ashley for a discussion of This Body's Not Big Enough for Both of Us by Edgar Cantero at Prohibition River, 82 Main St., Nyack. 21+ only
