Landscape designer Julie Friedman will talk with us about the basics of container garden design - how to create them, scale them to the space, select the best container and plant material and care for them - and about the benefits of container gardening in smaller spaces. How do we blend indoors with outdoors to create a seamless and peaceful transition from balcony or patio to indoor furnishings? She will include demonstrations and time for questions.
Friedman has a passion for container garden design and outdoor styling. Exteriors Outdoor Styling by Great American Landscapes (formerly Exteriors Landscape Design) was founded in 2014. After a decade creating seasonal container plantings, Exteriors‘ portfolio features ornamental perennials, colorful annuals, edibles and evergreens that are integrated and planted within beautifully designed, high quality planters. Exteriors ‘Jewel Box Collection‘ uses the most vibrant plant material each season and provides immediate results in the garden, outdoor rooms and public spaces, broadened across all seasons of the year with residential and commercial work.

Richard Cross will be reading two pieces: a personal narrative, "Days Like Wine," on the year he and his wife, newlyweds, spent in Würzburg, a charming university town in a winegrowing section of Lower Bavaria, and a short story-in-progress, "Love to Ashes, Dreams to Dust," which starts out in the area where Germany, France, and Switzerland come together and ends on the San Francisco Peninsula. The two pieces dovetail in that they‘re both stories of young love set in the late 1960s/early ‘70s and in similar locales; they diverge in that "Days Like Wine" is autobiographical while "Love to Ashes" isn‘t.

Following the reading, Richard would be happy to respond to any questions members might have. He‘s particularly interested in their reactions to "Love to Ashes," since it‘s unfinished and still fixable. Do the characters come to life? Is their story interesting and believable? Does the travel backdrop overwhelm them? Is there too much activity for the amount of space it‘s given? What could be done to make the story more compelling?

Richard Cross is an emeritus professor at the University of Maryland. He‘s published books on Flaubert and Joyce and on Malcolm Lowry as well as a number of essays and stories.

The science of DNA has been of immense help in freeing the innocent from prison. However, most claims of innocence do not have a scientific element available that would be probative of innocence. Countless cases require a complete field investigation and expert post-conviction legal assistance to help them obtain their rightful freedom. Centurion is dedicated to the vindication of the wrongly convicted. Since 1983, Centurion has freed 63 men and women who were serving life or death sentences for crimes they did not commit. Paul Casteleiro will share updates about Centurion’s ongoing fight for justice for the wrongfully incarcerated.

The Current State of U.S. Russian Relations with author and journalist Gregory Feifer. Nearly every 24-hour news cycle contains a news item related to Russia. Gregory will offer insights that may help us in understanding the rationale behind the current chaos in the world order.
A former NPR Moscow correspondent who reported from Russia for almost a decade, Gregory Feifer witnessed the coup d’état attempt against Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991. During the country‘s resurgence under Vladimir Putin, he observed the effects of its vast new oil wealth on an increasingly nationalistic society, as well as, Moscow‘s rekindling of a new Cold War-style opposition to the West. As a senior correspondent at Radio Free Europe in Prague, Feifer investigated Russian influence in Europe, including the Kremlin‘s use of Gazprom, the Russian gas monopoly, as an instrument of foreign policy. This event is brought to you by the Council of Former Federal Executives & Associates (COFFE).
