CALENDAR LISTINGS FOR Monday, April
BRATTLEBORO "Good Clash: Why Democracy Depends on Productive Disagreement" - a Series with Meg Mott: Today's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute presentation is "Thorny issue #1: Abortion." In 1973, the Supreme Court attempted to define women’s reproductive rights in Roe v. Wade. Rather than settling this debate, that decision spawned the powerful "right to life" movement. This class considers the rational arguments on both sides of the issue as well as the cognitive dissonance each exerts on the other. Meg Mott is Professor of Politics at Marlboro College. 10 a.m. - 12 noon on Mondays. Through Monday, May 6. $6 per lecture. New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St. Julie Lavorgnia: 802-365-7278, www.learn.uvm.edu/program/osher-life-long-learning/olli-statewide/brattleboro.
