Tues, Sept 9.Doors open at 6 pm. As China changes in the 21st century, Confucianism is making a comeback. Confucian scholar (and SHSNY Board member) Samuel Milligan will explain the basic tenets and trace the history of this system of social ethics — rather than a religion — that has survived and flourished in Asia for two-and-a-half millennia.

Mr. Milligan will discuss the rise of the New Confucian Movement and its relevance to current issues in Asia, as well as possible solutions for social problems there and in the West. Sept 9, 6:15-8PM, 209 W 23rd St (at 7th Ave) (Muhlenberg Public Library, 3rd Floor)

Carl Sagan's The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God.

Every meeting of our Book Club is a book swap too. Bring what you want, take what you want. Remaining books are donated to the library.209 W 23rd St 10011 (Muhlenberg Public Library, 3rd Floor)
