Our speaker will be Jeffrey Fleishman, a foreign correspondent for the LA Times for 11 years, including six in Cairo. Late last year he joined the Calendar Arts & Entertainment team in Los Angeles to cover a different locale of intrigue: Hollywood.
He covered the wars in Kosovo and Iraq, the rise of Al Qaeda and the Arab Spring.Before joining The Times, Jeff was Rome bureau chief for the Philadelphia Inquirer. He was a finalist for the Pulitzer for feature writing, and has written three novels.
We will meet for lunch in the enclosed, air-conditioned back patio of the restaurant. (Burger Continental was a favorite of Dick Turpin, Tom Johnson and Lou Fleming.)
When you arrive, please have $20 in cash to cover the cost of lunch and a glass of beer or wine.
