Dr. Ian Feinhandler Returns to Library with “The Crisis with North Korea”

College professor and patron favorite to share insights around current geopolitical crisis

Post Date:11/12/2017 5:27 pm

Dr. Ian Feinhandler returns to the Library to talk about the Crisis with North Korea.

Since 2006, North Korea has conducted six nuclear tests, and between January 1 and September 15, 2017, it conducted 14 missile tests, demonstrating the capability to reach American soil with an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile. On August 8, 2017 President Trump declared that any North Korean threat to the United States would be met with “fire, fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before.” In response, North Korea announced plans to launch four missiles into international waters near the U.S. territory of Guam. As America – and the world – holds its breath and wonders what will come next, Dr. Ian Feinhandler returns to the Longmont Public Library to explain “The Crisis with North Korea,” in a talk scheduled for Thursday, January 11, from 7 to 8 pm at the Library.

A Professor of Geography and International Affairs at the University of Colorado-Boulder and Front Range Community College, Dr. Feinhandler is well-positioned to make sense of the calamitous situation brewing between our country and North Korea. He is also one of the Library’s most popular speakers, so this program is likely to sell out quickly. Don’t miss this engaging and timely program. Register online, beginning Monday, December 11 at 10 am. No email address or internet service? Call (303) 651-8472 to register by phone.
