As part of Georgetown Village’s “Opening New Doors” series, former Secretary of State and New York Times best-selling author Madeleine Albright will talk via Zoom about her latest book, “Hell and Other Destinations,” on Thursday, May 28, at 5:30 p.m.
Bill Plante, renowned former CBS News correspondent and Georgetown Village board member, will moderate the conversation. Viewers will have an opportunity to ask questions using the Zoom Chat function.
In her inspiring memoir, Albright reflects on the final stages of her career with candor and wit. When leaving office as America’s first female secretary of state in 2001, she was asked how she wished to be remembered. “I don’t want to be remembered,” she answered. “I am still here and have much more I intend to do.”
As a neighbor and supporter of Georgetown Village, Albright will also speak to the organization’s important mission. Georgetown Village had to postpone its annual spring benefit, but the demand for its services has grown exponentially over the last months. Staff and volunteers are helping with meal preparation, grocery shopping and rides to doctors, while providing enhanced educational and cultural services.
Registration and payment by credit card must be received by May 27. A contribution of $100 includes participation in the program and an autographed copy of “Hell and Other Destinations.” To register, visit georgetown-village.org.
