New Canaan Library / Lamb Room

151 Main Street, New Canaan, CT 06840


The public is invited to attend a World Affairs Forum Great Decisions event featuring Ken Furst, President of Momentum Group, Inc. and Member, Board of Directors World Affairs Councils of America. The topic of discussion will be “Afghanistan: A First- Hand View from Kabul” and will be held at the New Canaan Library on November 19.

In March 2012, Ken was invited to join a 6-member delegation by Ambassador Ryan Crocker and the U.S. State Department to meet with over 65 Afghans in government and non-government positions—including a private meeting with President Hamid Karzai. Upon return from Afghanistan, Ken has reached an audience of 190,000 through the media and became a keynote speaker in Massachusetts, Connecticut and California, reaching nearly 1,000 attendees with insight from this first-hand view of the situation in Kabul.

This event is free and open to the public. The program will begin at 7:00 pm in the Lamb Room. Refreshments prior to the presentation are courtesy of New Canaan Library, a co-sponsor of the program. The Great Decisions programs at the New Canaan Library are generously supported by HSBC Bank USA. For more information please contact the World Affairs Forum at (203) 356-0340 or
