Discussion of Ukraine call slated

Open to the public, the book club-style conversation will befrom 10:15-11:45, p.m. at the Wilmington Public Library.

Participants will explore the nine-page whistleblower complaint and the five-page White House communication memo of the July 25 phone call between President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
