What causes famine? How can it be prevented in the future?
 

Fears of global food shortages have followed Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which has disrupted grain shipments from the major grain producer. But what about countries and regions that were suffering before this impending shortage? How is famine defined, and how is it different from simple food shortages? What if any remedies are there? By Daniel Maxwell

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs.  The group will read the Great Decisions Briefing Book, then attend the meeting with a short video introduction and a guided discussion. Materials will be available at the Library in advance of each discussion.
