How To Prevent Thanksgiving From Becoming A "Hollerday"

Remember how fun Thanksgiving was after the 2016 election?  Not so tranquil across some dinner tables, we hear. 

And the same thing could happen again this year--well any year, really--because our relatives share meals, but don't necessarily share politics. 

Marla Estes and Rob Schlapfer, who encourage people to converse across the political divide in Bridging the Divide, offer a special program for Thanksgiving called "Holiday? Or Hollerday?"  The session is Friday evening (Nov. 9) at the Medford library; Rob and Marla give perspective and a preview in our studio.
