Oct 28 ~ Humanist Group ~ ALUUC
October 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Craig Bailey will facilitate the ALUUC Humanist Group’s discussion of George F. Will’s book The Conservative Sensibility at 7 PM on Monday evening, October 28, at ALUUC.
“It’s time to return to the wisdom of the founding fathers, argues this sweeping political manifesto from Washington Post columnist Will.
