We are delighted to announce that former Secretary of State and New York Times bestselling author Madeleine Albright has agreed to a Zoom meeting with Villagers throughout the DC, Maryland and Virginia metropolitan area on Thursday, May 28th at 5:30 PM to talk about her latest book Hell and Other Destinations. This program is part of Georgetown Village’s “Opening New Doors” series.
In her inspiring memoir, Madame Albright reflects on the final stages of her career with candor and wit. When leaving office as America’s first female secretary of state in 2001, she was asked how she wished to be remembered. “I don’t want to be remembered,” she answered. “I am still here and have much more I intend to do.” As a neighbor and supporter of the Village movement, she understands and will speak to our important mission--neighbors helping neighbors stay engaged and thrive as we grow older. Bill Plante, renowned former CBS news correspondent and Georgetown Village board member, will moderate the conversation and you will have an opportunity to ask your question using the Zoom chat function.
Georgetown Village will be sharing a portion of the profits from the program with Palisades Village. When signing up, please be sure to identify yourself as a member, volunteer or supporter of Palisades Village.
Your contribution of $100.00 will include participation in the program and a copy of Hell and Other Destinations with an autographed bookplate.
We hope that you will join us on May 28th for what will surely be a stimulating and enjoyable hour of discussion with one of the world’s leaders and our esteemed regional neighbor.
