NYC Event - Recap
On Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012, the Robert Bosch Foundation Alumni Association invited Gayle Tzemach Lemmon (Bosch XVIII) to address Alumni members in the New York area. Gayle discussed her recent bestselling novel, “The Dressmaker of Khair Khana” and her position as deputy director of the Council on Foreign Relations’ Women and Foreign Policy program. Gayle’s discussion focused mainly on the journalistic endeavors that led her to writing the book, which focuses on stories of women entrepreneurs under the Taliban rule in Afghanistan. The passion and inspiration of Gayle’s talk, followed by a thoughtful discussion with the attendees, made for a fascinating evening. Numerous Bosch Alumni from the New York City area attended the event, spanning from the first Bosch class to recent returnees and our youngest participant, three- month old Piper Anne, (daughter of Mary Pflum-Peterson, Bosch XV). Several Cultural Vistas employees were also in attendance.
Following the discussion, the RBFAA hosted a reception with food and wine. The event was a great success, inspiring many to reconnect with their Bosch experience.
