Seasoned political observer Alan Schechter will assess the the U.S. opioid epidemic during a talk for Wellesley-Weston Lifetime Learning (WWLL) . Dr. Schechter’s presentation to the American Issues class is an opportunity for seniors from all surrounding communities to sample free of charge one of WWLL’s numerous class offerings at the Unitarian Universalist Society at 309 Washington Street in Wellesley. Schechter is a Wellesley College professor emeritus of political science who taught at the school for 41 years. The 10-week fall semester of Wellesley-Weston Lifetime Learning began in March and ends on May 21. Hour-long, no-credit courses are held at 10 and 11:30 with a coffee-and-cookies break in between. The American Issues class is one of those that features a different guest speaker each week.
