Bannon @ Toronto Munk Debates & New KFL Public Lectures

Hi  L.L.L. Life Long Learners,

For anybody who may be interested, The Globe and Mail, on Sept. 6th. reported that Steve Bannon will be debating the merits of political populist movements with David Frum at the Monk Debates to be held in Toronto at the Roy Thompson Hall, on Nov. 2nd. You can get more information on this particular upcoming Monk debate along with information on previous Monk's debates which can be accessed online at  I expect the Globe and Mail will do a followup press article on this Monk debate theme sometime after November 2nd, 2018.

The theme of the Bannon debate on Nov. 2nd., 2018 will take the form of the following resolution:
Be it resolved that the future of western politics is populism not liberal.
Bannon will be debating in favor of this resolution.
David Frum is a current conservative political writer living in the U.S. David is also the son of Barbara Frum (a former CBC announcer for their radio program called AS IT HAPPENS. Frum will be taking the CON position in opposition to Bannon's support for the rise of populist political movements worldwide.

Locally, it has also come to my attention that September is science literacy month. Therefore, for those interested I encourage you to check out the Kingston & Frontenac Public Library upcoming programs and events at: www. kfpl.caa/programs-and-events. At this same website, you will find information on two public lectures that might be of potential interest to some L.L.L. patrons?

The upcoming KFPL public lectures are as follows: Sustaining The Oceans. Professor Cole from Queen's will be speaking about how plastics are found almost everywhere and why they are so hard to get rid of and what you can do to reduce your plastic waste Date: Thursday, Sept. 20th., Turner Library, at 2:00 p.m.

The second public lecture is entitled Target Earth. This lecture will be given by astronomer Frank Kitchens and will focus on a discussion of comets and asteroids and the dangers they pose to our fragile civilization. Place: Turner Library, Sat. Sept. 22nd.
See the KFPL website for more information on registering.

And, finally, any adults with children under 12, you might want to consider trying to get into the Ontario Planetarium display coming to the Turner Library on Sat. 15th. More information at the KFPL website.
