RISKY ADVENTURES AT THE PARTING OF THE IRON CURTAIN... This memoir is an insider's view of the momentous events surrounding the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, pinpointing its effect on individual lives. The author and her husband, Walter Stankievich, participate in stealthy meetings with dissidents behind the Iron Curtain; and at a Congress in Minsk, where the Foreign Minister warns the émigrés against demanding greater changes. Walter's work at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty motivates his actions, and takes them from suburban New Jersey to Munich and Prague. 


Happy Holidays


For the December 13 meeting,  Bill Green, editor of Marco Eagle / Naples Daily News will be presenting the best way for writer's to submit content; and offer tips on getting that content to the “right person.” He will also take questions from the audience. "I find that folks are often seeking answers as to why the 'media' does this, and why they don’t do that. I feel as though I can provide insight as to how the Marco Eagle and Naples Daily News respond to and serve the community." Bill Green 

We will also be nominating the 2018 Board of Directors and Committee Chairman.
