How to get there


Greetings, YaleWomen of Northern California!

Join us for an informal, salon-style discussion about the Olympics and Russia! In this twist on our traditional potlucks, we will watch highlights from the Olympics and Megan Dean Farah (BK '03) and Shoshana Iliaich (DC '10) will offer their perspectives on Russia's global projections of power and its role as host of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. A trained historian, Megan will offer a historical snapshot of Russia's imperial strategy in the Caucasus and beyond. An intelligence analyst with a passion for Russia, Shoshana will expand the dialogue to reflect on human rights and contemporary geopolitics.

As this is an afternoon/pre-dinner potluck, please bring a light snack or beverage to share.

Lauren's exact address will show up when you RSVP. There is limited street parking near her home in Ashbury Heights, but the 33 and 37 buses drop off within two blocks. Please let us know if you need assistance with transportation, how you learned about this event, and also what type of food and beverage you will be bringing.

See you there!
