Our delightful spring event was attended by 45 members and friends. They entered a beautiful room, which had been transformed into a spring garden, complete with potted herbs as centerpieces. After a sumptuous pot luck meal and lots of conversation, the attendees made their way into an adjoining room to hear a presentation by Daniel Pollack-Pelzner, a professor of literature at Linfield College. He spoke about Jane Austen as the prose Shakespeare. He was dynamic, humorous, and very interesting-truly one of the best speakers we have ever had. The raffle basket winner’s name was drawn and the guests left with light hearts and much to think about.
