Thirty-five years ago “information” came from books, television, and print media. What is it today? What will it be 10 years from now? Does veracity matter? Why should we care? Join a discussion with a panel of experts from publishing and the news media about our brave new world of information.
A discussion of where are going in our lives. Second career? Second (or third) marriage? New priorities as empty-nesters with grown kids? Social engagement to give back to the community? Work for charity? Travel? Retirement? Adjusting the balance between career and family? Reinventing ourselves? Something else? We are reaching a stage in our lives when these questions (and others) loom large. Take part in an open forum led by a group of classmates.
