All Palmers are welcome to Dinner & Discussion Friday, September 22, when we will welcome Professor John Boles, Rice University's William P. Hobby Professor Emeritus of History, as our special guest. Professor Boles will speak about Rice's strategic plan, which examines Rice's connection to the city and changes being planned to meet the demands of the 21st century. Professor Boles wrote the definitive biography of Edgar Odell Lovett, the founding President of Rice who set its initial course, and an acclaimed biography of President Thomas Jefferson. We will gather at the home of Bill and Paula Palamountain at 7 PM. Please bring a dish to share with about six people, plus $3 each to cover beverage costs. If you have any questions, contact Joan Baird Glover at 346-444-6096 or  .
