March 27 ~ Approaching Life’s Challenges

Mon., Mar. 27 (3-5pm): The Dupont Circle Village will be hosting another of its monthly Live and Learn programs, open to the public at the National League of American Pen Women’s Pen Arts Building (1300 17th St., NW). Among the questions to be addressed will be if one is challenged by the need to survive life in retirement and the sense of loneliness it often brings, how one can respond to threats like health issues, and what are the rewards in pursuing a new purpose in life. The talk is free for Village members and $10 for others. For reservations, contact Linda Hirsh, (202) 234-2567, or lindajkh@mac.com.

Dr. George, a senior scientist at the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and a clinical professor at George Washington University School of Medicine, will discuss the emotional and behavior responses we use to confront change. Board certified in both internal medicine and psychiatry, he has published more than 100 peer reviewed articles and is the author of Untangling the Mind, Why We Behave the Way We Do.

News We Can Use

The editor welcomes the receipt of information about community happenings, such as church-sponsored events, neighborhood and block association activities, public meetings dealing with neighborhood issues, and other events of a non-commercial nature. These may be emailed to us at

Because we are a neighborhood newspaper and not a city-wide or regional publication, we restrict our reporting to that about news and activities occurring within the specific neighborhoods we serve--Adams Morgan, Mt. Pleasant, Columbia Heights; Dupont, Scott, Thomas & Logan Circles; Mt. Vernon Square/Pennsylvania Quarter, Shaw, U Street.

Publication is always the second Friday of the month and deadline for submission is always the first Friday, although every effort is made to include later-received submissions on a space available basis. Notices of selected events received following publication may be included during the ensuing current issue; again, on a space basis.

Special Note: Emails received bearing no substantive entry in the Subject field will not be downloaded for reasons of virus protection security.
