Upcoming Events

October Monthly Meeting

The October Monthly Meeting will take place this Thursday, October 23rd at Oratorio di Santa Cecilia (via Zamboni, 15). The talk will feature author Francelle Bradford White, who will discuss her new book "Andrée's War", which details her mother's exploits in the French Resistance during WWII. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and proceeds will go to The Andrée Griotteray White Charitable Trust, which was established in the name of the author's mother to fund research for Alzheimer's disease, which she has been suffering from for several years. Please meet outside the entrance on via Zamboni at 7:30pm and no later than 7:55pm as the doors will be closed at that time and it will no longer be possible to enter the Oratorio. A no-host aperitivo will follow the talk at Caffe Masini (via degli Orefici).

Save the date for the November Monthly Meeting, scheduled to take place on Thursday, November 20th.  Stay tuned for additional details.
