Upcoming Activities/Events and News:

Our next NCWA book club meeting is scheduled for December 12, 2016 at 1:30PM at which time we’ll discuss A Rage for Order: The Middle East in Turmoil, from Tahrir Square to ISIS  by Robert F. Worth. The book describes and analyzes several Middle Eastern countries who experienced what is now commonly called the Arab Spring. A wave of revolution spread through the Middle East as protesters demanded an end to tyranny, corruption, and economic decay. From Egypt to Yemen, a generation of young Arabs insisted on a new ethos of common citizenship. Five years later, their utopian aspirations have taken on a darker cast as old divides reemerge and deepen. In one country after another, brutal terrorists and dictators have risen to the top.

The book was favorably reviewed in the New York Timesreceived 4½ stars from Amazon and has tie-ins with several upcoming NCWA speakers and two of the Great Decisions 2017 topics. Don’t miss the conversation. 

Discussion of book will be held at the Stratford, 5601 Turtle Bay Drive, Naples, FL 34108 (same location as last year).
