“I​ ​want​ ​each​ ​of​ ​these​ ​evenings​ ​to​ ​feel​ ​like​ ​we’ve​ ​all​ ​wound​ ​up​ ​at​ ​a​ ​great,​ ​eclectic​ ​dinner​ ​party,​ ​full​ ​of​ ​lively conversation​ ​and​ ​fabulously​ ​engaging​ ​guests. We​ ​set​ ​out​ ​to​ ​change​ ​the​ ​cultural​ ​conversation.​ ​So​ ​let’s​ ​converse!” - Carole Shorenstein Hays
