Description

Join us for the LWVFA 70th LWVFA General Fund & the 36th LWVFA Education Fund Annual Meeting

Keynote speaker: Tom Gjelten, NPR Correspondent and Author of "Nation of Nations" about immigration to Fairfax County, Virginia

Tom Gjelten covers issues of religion, faith, and belief for NPR News, a beat that encompasses such areas as the changing religious landscape in America, the formation of personal identity, the role of religion in politics, and social and cultural conflict arising from religious differences. His reporting draws on his many years covering national and international news from posts in Washington and around the world.

In 1986, Gjelten became one of NPR's pioneer foreign correspondents, posted first in Latin America and then in Central Europe. In the years that followed, he covered the wars in Central America, social and political strife in South America, the first Gulf War, the wars in the former Yugoslavia, and the transitions to democracy in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

Gjelten's latest book, A Nation of Nations: A Great American Immigration Story, focuses on Fairfax County.

LWV of the Fairfax Area discussed the book, A Nation of Nations, during our January 2018 Unit Meetings.

Tom will have a book signing after the luncheon.

9:30 a.m. – Registration & coffee

Luncheon Menu: House Salad, Chicken Piccata (Chicken cooked in herb & cheese batter served with a lemon capers sauce), Virginia Style Green Beans & Honey Glazed Carrots, Bread and Butter, Dessert, Coffee Service
