On Tuesday evening, June 25, USA Today editorial page editor Bill Sternberg will visit Sunrise Senior Living in Reston to help launch an evening speaker’s series program that will be open to the public.
The program, called “Creative Conversations,” will be the first of many such evening events that bring together noted journalists, authors and “literary luminaries” to Sunrise Senior Living for conversation and sharing of ideas.
Nate Salisbury, Executive Director of Sunrise Senior Living in Reston, says the new program is designed “to place our seniors in the center of creative, intellectual conversations, and to encourage positive dialogue within and throughout the community.”
Part of a new series that Sunrise has recently launched, the program also offers weekly writing classes and a lively list of speakers.
Kristin Clark Taylor, a prize-winning author, journalist and former White House communications strategist under President George H.W. Bush, designed the program and teaches the weekly workshops.
“In bringing this program to Sunrise,” Taylor says, “We wanted to give seniors the opportunity to explore their untapped creative potential but to also actively invite the community to participate in this multi-generational dialogue.”
