Regina Public Library welcomes ground-breaking scholar

Dr. Chris Kutarna saw Donald Trump’s presidency coming. He predicted the results of the Brexit vote. He perceived the ebbing tide of globalization.

Now, he’s bringing his unique viewpoint to Regina.

Regina Public Library (RPL) is pleased to welcome Dr. Kutarna, the Regina-born Oxford scholar and co-author of Age of Discovery: Navigating the Risks and Rewards of our second Renaissance. Dr. Kutarna will share his insights on how community leaders and professionals can use lessons from the past to rise to the challenges of our modern world.   

“Our current economic reality is characterized by disruption, instability and volatility,” said Dr. Kutarna. “People are feeling vulnerable because outcomes have become unpredictable; our landscape is changing too quickly.”

“The good news is, if we take a step back and look at our history, we can see that we’ve been here before. If we apply that perspective to the changes we’re experiencing, there are clues and cues to help us navigate that uncharted territory.”

Chris Kutarna: Age of Discovery

Talk: Thursday, November 8 at 5:30pm, Central Library mezzanine (2nd Floor)

Reception: 7:00pm, Circa 27 Lounge, Hotel Saskatchewan

Tickets:  $15; $30 for talk and reception

Ticket information: chriskutarnarpl.eventbrite.caTelephone or Skype interviews with Dr. Kutarna are available October 30 to November 1, from 8:00 am to 1:00pm.
