Dinner with Andrea Barnet
Author of the newly released Visionary Women: How Rachel Carson, Jane Jacobs, Jane Goodall, and Alice Waters Changed Our World, Andrea Barnet is herself a visionary woman for the 21st century. A regular contributor to the New York Times Book Review for 25 years, Barnet now finds herself on the other side of the equation, as reviews are rolling in for her study on a quartet of change-makers who overturned conventional ways of thinking about the environment, city planning, animal rights, and agricultural sustainability. As The Washington Post puts it, “Barnet makes a powerful case for a shared perspective among her subjects,” united by their perseverance and passion for truth.
$100/$90 members; includes seasonal dinner, wine, and book.
