The UNA Club will host writer Doug Matheson to address the topic “Being Up to the Challenges of Our Times: Not Easy But Necessary.”
Matheson has lived in India, Singapore, Lebanon, France, and Rwanda. Watching the fabric of civilization begin to unravel and the genocide unfold in Rwanda in 1994, Doug Matheson has witnessed major societal convulsions. He saw a lesser example of the same in Beirut, Lebanon, in 1980-81.
In Tuesday's presentation, he will take both national and global perspectives in examining “Our Times” – the challenging global issues like climate change and terrorism we face, and how we can think critically about them.
