WEDNESDAYS: 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon, 6 weeks: February 27 through April 3
LOCATION: The Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville

Too many immigrants and of the wrong kind? Unchecked corporate power? An over-reaching Supreme Court? Too many rich? Too many poor? Does democracy still work? Is the financial system equal to the challenges of a new economy? These are just some of the issues that confronted late nineteenth and early twentieth century America. How does this era speak to our own and just what was life really like back then? We will consider all this and have some fun in the process.
