Deeply engrossed in fascinating discussions, guests were reluctant to see the Morris Arts’ 11th Great Conversations gala come to an end. Little wonder, since guests and hosts explored such topics as encounters with cannibals, Nazi looted art, preserving quality journalism, climate change adaptation strategies, the foibles of famous rock stars (and concert promotion), staging Broadway shows, creative investing and researching new cancer treatments, to name a few.
For the first time, the event took place at the Birchwood Manor – whose expansive spaces accommodated the record attendance in comfort. The many smiling faces were testament to a rewarding and gratifying evening for all.
It was truly a night to remember!
