Here’s your chance to visit the former USSR without ever leaving home!

With the former Soviet republic of Belarus much in the news, popular North Shore speaker Doug Brendel will present a lively talk about the country, with visuals.

Belarus was the country hardest-hit by radiation after the Chernobyl disaster, and has continued to struggle on multiple fronts since then.

The evening at Magnolia Library will include a no-holds-barred Q&A.

This free event begins at 7 pm on Thursday, January 13th, at Magnolia Library & Community Center, 1 Lexington Ave. in Gloucester MA.

Doug, along with his wife Kristina, has led the humanitarian operation in Belarus for 20+ years.

Each attendee at the Thursday evening event will receive a gift of appreciation for their time and participation.
