“Oppenheimer” talk is moved to town hall


KENT—The “Oppenheimer Legacy” talk slated for March 9 at 2 p.m. is being moved from the Kent Memorial Library to the main meeting room at Kent Town Hall, 41 Kent Green Blvd., as so many people have registered there isn’t enough room at the library. 

The presenter will be John Lauder, a founder of the James A. Garfield Center for Public Leadership at Hiram College and a Senior Fellow at the Wisconsin Project on Nuclear Arms Control. He also serves as an independent consultant on nonproliferation, arms control monitoring and intelligence. 

“Oppenheimer,” the movie will be screened Friday, March 8, at 6 p.m. at the Kent Memorial Library, 32 Main St. Popcorn will be available. The library staff encourages visitors to bring other snacks or drinks.

A reception with Lauder will be held immediately following the March 9 talk. Those who would like to lend a hand and bring a potluck item, should notify organizer Sarah Chase.  There will also be a Dutch-treat dinner at the Fife ‘n Drum at 7 p.m. on March 9. The Fife will serve specially made “Oppenheimer Martinis.” RSVP to Chase by Thursday.

Those who wish to attend the talk should register here
