Here is the list of topics and references we shall discuss at our next meeting:  

Aging, Death & Dying
First, the memoir suggested by Bill Loughman: Grumbach, Doris:  "Coming Into the End Zone, A Memoir".  W.W.Norton, NY 1991  ISBN 0-393-30944-4  
And, a most interesting TED video: https://www.ted.com/talks/bj_miller_what_really_matters_at_the_end_of_life In fact, the whole TED sector on Death may be worth mining intensively.  

Climate Change
With a big thank you to Ella Hirst, I went to the Albany Library talk presented by Andrew Gunther.    [ http://andrewgunther.com/  ] He is an expert on Climate Change; more importantly for our purposes, he is skilled at presenting to lay audiences scientific facts (not opinions) in a clear, informative and non-combative manner. Please check out his website - his background and style may make him ideal as a guest speaker to the Village at large. Perhaps we can start the planning toward such a Talk for some time this Fall.  Among the wealth of information he presented, Andy pointed towards a website dedicated to dealing with the arguments of climate change deniers:     [   https://www.skepticalscience.com/   ]
