Please join us for the inaugural meeting of the Southern California Alumni Chapter's Salon Series with internationally-renowned anthropologist, water scholar and feminist Suzanne Hanchett '62. While Suzanne could talk on many topics, we've asked her to regale us with stories and insights from the latest meeting of the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women.
After Suzanne escorts us through her highlights of her U.N. trip, complete with photos, we will open the floor to open discussion.
We also plan at least a few minutes towards the end of the afternoon for Suzanne to tell us about her recent book, Water Culture in South Asia: Bangladesh Perspectives.
We hope to host quarterly salons with Reed alumni or other members of the Reed community leading discussions in areas of their expertise or interest at a variety of venues in different areas of our geographically-extensive chapter. While we are in the infancy of the program, please help us by sending us ideas for potential speakers and subjects for future salons.
While an RSVP is not absolutely necessary to Hastings Library, let us know if will be attending so we can plan accordingly.
Often, we cap events with a trip to a nearby watering hole (coffee shop or bar, depending on interest) to continue our conversation. For those who are interseted, stay tuned.
Please also contact us with your ideas for any other chapter events and gatherings - we are always looking for ideas and energy! If you are interested in joining the Steering Committee, please let us know.
