Sunday Supper - May 22
with guest: Mia Bloom, International Security Fellow at the New America and Professor at Georgia State University
Sunday Suppers are casual gatherings where new ideas and stimulating conversation are the main fare. The guest speaker leads an informal discussion based on their work or topic of interest. Reservations are open to current Harvard Club of Georgia members and their guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendance is limited to 12 people in addition to the guest speaker so that the conversation is more personal and happens around the dinner table.
NEW FORMAT: The dinners will be Pot-luck, so please bring a dish that you can share with the other guests. The May dinner will be at the home of Kathy Huyghe (Buckhead).
If you are interested in hosting a Sunday Dinner, please contact Robert ( email@example.com )
You must be fully immunized against Covid to attend.
COST: Free, but you must register in advance.
