“Great Decisions”

Monday, May 15, 6:00 p.m. 

Ambassador Stapleton Roy presents:

“Sino-American Relations: Past, Present & Future”

In just one week, on Monday, May 15, Ambassador J. Stapleton (“Stape”) Roy will lead our “Great Decisions” public forum in the Walpole Town Library. You won’t want to miss Ambassador Roy’s presentation: “Sino-American Relations: Past, Present & Future.” 

The Ambassador will be joining via Zoom, and there will be an opportunity for questions and discussion following his presentation.

Ambassador Roy has immersed himself in the study of China and modern Asia throughout his long career. A fluent Mandarin-speaker, he rose to become a three-time United States Ambassador, serving in Singapore, the People’s Republic of China, and Indonesia. In 1996, he was promoted to the rank of Career Ambassador, the highest rank in the U.S. Foreign Service. In 2008, Roy was named director of the Kissinger Institute for Chinese-U.S. Studies at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, where he is now Founding Director Emeritus and a Distinguished Scholar. (Tonight he is attending Kissinger’s 100th birthday celebration!)

Suggested reading is the Foreign Policy Association’s article “China and America: Back to the Future,” by David Lampton, which is available at the library. A copy can be emailed to you upon request by contacting Jane Malmberg, Library Director: 

Also available at the library is the DVD “Great Decisions,” with a 30-minute Master Class on China & the United States.

All are welcome to join this public forum at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, May 15, either in person in the Hubbard Meeting Room at the Walpole Town Library or via Zoom. For the Zoom link, please contact Jane Malmberg in advance of the meeting:
