From the Host…

Dear Virtual Dinner Party Member,

With this posting of 14 new reviews, the 2015-16 season of the Virtual Dinner Party comes to an end. Summer arrives in eight days, and our annual ideas festival, KentPresents, will consume us for the next three months. Presenting 80 speakers in 45 sessions over three days will occupy all our time, and then some.

During the just-ended VDP season, we have been pleased to post 371 reviews on cultural events that have run the gamut (not from A to B, as Dorothy Parker wrote of Katherine Hepburn’s emotional range) from A to Z. For this, we thank all of you who have contributed reviews, those of you who read the reviews, and those of you who have encouraged us to forge on.

The Virtual Dinner Party will resume in September. We’ll see you then.
