11/18: SOLD OUT--Deborah Tannen+John Andrews '65

NOW SOLD OUT - Reception with the peerless Deborah Tannen and John Andrews '65 in a conversation on 'difficult' conversations (and her latest book). A food+wine treat, plus a great discussion ...


WE ARE NOW SOLD OUT -- THERE IS SIMPLY NO MORE SPACE.  NO WALK-IN REGISTRATIONS, PLEASE.

Qs on REGISTERING?  EMAIL your question to pcw@pcw-dc.org (for same-day response).  If you mailed/faxed in a payment, please bring the FORM with you. We need pre-paid registrations to manage the space for this event.  (NO MORE ONLINE, MAIL or FAX REGISTRATIONS are available.)....

OUR ATTRACTION ON 11/18: Please take time for something completely different - a very special EVENING with Deborah Tannen -- as you share a conversation with John Andrews '65 -- discussing her research (underpinning her latest book). This is our co-partnered eve with the English Speaking Union, and we thank John Andrews for sharing this special evening with PCW.

John's high-level "public discussions" with notable cultural figures (from the US and abroad) are known to many throughout the country through his English Speaking Union programs.

Question for you: Are you having a tough time confronting tough issues with a family member? JOIN US for unique ideas on this, and the special networking with Princeton, Georgetown & Ivy alums.

Our book in the spotlight -- You Were Always Mom's Favorite -- targets those touching and charged conversations sisters have. The book reflects Dr. Tannen's continuing work on the emerging field of "critical conversations," discussions reflecting not only the talks at home, but the tough discussions often found at work.  She has redefined how we think about conversations and how they make or break relationships. (Her latest profile is available in the New York Times Magazine.)

When you join us, you'll get an opportunity meet with Georgetown and Princeton alumni (plus savor the food at our reception).

FYI: Deborah Tannen is Prof. of Linguistics at Georgetown University and earned best-seller status as she's continued to do research and lecture worldwide. One book familiar to many in the DC area is her Talking From 9 to 5: Men and Women at Work. (Please see her "BRIEF BIO" below.)
