United Nation discussion group

Helen Williamson




My bell-weather friend Jim Golladay asked me yesterday what our topic will be in September.  The answer, in case anyone else forgot, is we’ll be discussing the New York Magazine special issue on How the Arab World came apart after the Iraq invasion.


The report is located here:


Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart

Fractured Lands: How the Arab World Came Apart

The story of more than a decade of war, terror and revolution in the Middle East, seen through the eyes of six people whose lives were changed forever.

We talked about dividing up the report among us by reporting on the life and times of one of the six individuals profiled in the story, or by the events of any one of the years covered.  Please, read the report with an eye to contributing to the discussion.  I’ll be back in a couple weeks to probe for help.



 Come to Helen’s a little early for snacks and socializing — 357 Nile Street, Nevada City.  Please let Helen know if you will be able to make the meeting — phone 265-5839.
