The Study Group will be meeting on Monday October 19,  at 7:30, via Zoom, to discuss a new book by Anne Applebaum: Twilight of Democracy: the Seductive Lure of Authoritarianism. Applebaum is a Pulitzer-prize-winning historian. But this book is personal: Applebaum comes out of the American center-right, and is married to a center-right Polish politician. Her question: why did many of her friends, in Europe and America, turn to authoritarian leaders? The Study Group meets monthly to discuss a wide variety of books dealing with issues in philosophy, religion, science, history, and current affairs.  New members are welcome!
