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 #3: Guns." In 2010, the Supreme Court struck down a Chicago ban on handguns, arguing that the right to bear arms was a fundamental right. In the wake of mass shootings, a powerful gun safety movement has rejected the Court's interpretation. We'll consider 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.
