Women’s Luncheons

DCA Women’s Luncheons are monthly social gatherings, for both women and men, offering various types of presenters, from authors, to those with poignant human interest stories, to specialists on travel, theater, gardening, entertaining and home décor. Luncheons are held monthly from October to June, and are catered by
Michael Joseph’s Catering.

“Hollywood: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow” featuring Susan Granger, movie critic and author of 150 Timeless Movies

For the past century, Hollywood has shaped our dreams and aspirations, and given us our heroes. Entertainment is America’s biggest export. Yet the kind of disruption that hit music, publishing and other industries is already reshaping the entertainment business, heralding the Golden Age of Distribution. Susan Granger, whose reviews and commentaries are published worldwide, will discuss what’s in store, and her book. Men are welcome, too! Luncheon will be provided by Michael Joseph’s Catering.
