Stop the presses! We have a Russian who wants to set us all straight on what's actually happening in the Ukraine!
THIS FRIDAY, March 7, 7 p.m. at Lenexa Price Chopper: DOUBLE FEATURE
IN THE NEWS: THE UKRAINE & THE SLAVIC SOUL
Our resident Russian Iggy has been doing research on what's been happening in the Ukraine (besides talking to his nephew in Russia). What do you think you know about the Ukrainian & Russian people: their past, present and where they're now headed? Bring all your questions. And your answers.
Prepare to be challenged. Get facts you haven't heard from the American media.
Iggy says: Find out how Putin is skillfully playing the game of geopolitical chess, while the West may be just playing marbles, how the West lacks understanding of the enigmatic Slavic "soul" while Putin masterfully navigates Russian souls into unchartered territory.

LAZY READERS — MARCH!
For the nosy person who doesn't have time to read it all, but wants to know it all!
Bring whatever you've been reading, and come to discuss that and what everyone else is reading. Subjects can include just about anything: fiction or non-fiction, history, science, psychology, philosophy, religion, humor — books or blogs or articles, etc.
Come to talk or come to listen. No pressure, just friendly fun.
We 'll give anyone who wants 3-5 minutes to explain what they've been reading, and another 3-5 minutes for everyone to ask questions and discuss. We always learn a ton. Come make new friends and learn something new about what they’ve been reading.
Come at 6:45 p.m. to grab a salad bar or café supper downstairs or just chat before getting started.
Afterwards: Meet at the nearby Blue Moose for more discussion.
