Library U: Great Decisions – Brazil’s Metamorphosis
9:30 – 11:00 am @ Bethany Lutheran Church (7968 Finch Road NE)
Brazil — it’s the “B” in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has risen to new global prominence — it’s drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil’s trickiest problems — deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership — have held it back. Admission: Free

If I Could Give You a Day, with Dave Richards
3:00 – 4:00 pm @ Eagle Harbor Book Co. (157 Winslow Way East)
Complacent, self-made millionaire Scott Northwood wakes up one morning to discover he’s been given the ability to extend the lives of people who are about to die just when they are on the verge of achieving something important. But there’s a catch-he must shorten his own lifespan by an equivalent amount of time. Scott plunges into a moral and emotional maelstrom as his desire to live out his own comfortable life collides with a growing sense of obligation to transfer time to others who are clearly more deserving. Complicating matters, he falls deeply in love. Admission: Free
