There are some seats left for people to listen to a local discussion about the impact of the Nov. 3 election on the course of the country — no matter the outcome of that election.

The Missouri River Regional Library and Lincoln University are having a lecture at 7-8:30 p.m. Nov. 9 at MRRL's Art Gallery titled "The 2020 Presidential Election: A Postmortem."

The library invited the public to "Come discuss what may be the most important election of our lifetime, and what it means for the present and future of America. Did Joe Biden unseat Trump to make him a one-term president, or did Trump get a renewed mandate to 'Make America Great Again?' What will Trump's legacy as an ex-President be? Be a part of our post-election analysis as we discuss the process, promise and peril of the 2020 Presidential election outcome."

The discussion will be led by Darius Watson, an associate professor of political science at LU.

Registration for attending is available at

Registration will close at 5 p.m. Nov. 5. As of Wednesday afternoon, there were 18 seats left.

Everyone attending will be required to wear masks because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The library is monitoring the situation with the pandemic and may accordingly make changes to in-person programming.
