    cordially invites you to a Zoom conference with


    Anthony L. Gardner

    Former United States Ambassador to the European Union


    Please join us for a unique opportunity to hear Ambassador Gardner as he speaks candidly with our Executive Committee Member Alexander Leventhal, a fellow St. Bernard Old Boy, about his tenure as Ambassador under President Obama. Their discussion will include reflections on the current state of US - EU relations after four years of the Trump Administration, and offer thoughts about what the next four years of a Biden Administration may bring for the relationship between the United States and the European Union (post-Brexit).




    Ambassador Gardner has devoted more than 27 years of his distinguished career to US - European affairs as a government official and lawyer. Appointed by President Obama in 2013, Mr. Gardner served as the United States Ambassador to the European Union from March 2014 to January 2017. During his tenure, he played a pivotal role in some of the most challenging issues in the US - EU relationship, including the negotiations to conclude a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Agreement (TTIP), the Privacy Shield Agreement as well as the Umbrella Agreement, facilitating the transatlantic transfer of data. He was also instrumental in US - EU coordination of sanctions against Russia following its annexation of Crimea and the facilitation of US participation in EU-funded research programs.

    Today, Ambassador Gardner is Managing Partner at Brookfield Asset Management, a board member of Iberdrola S.A., and senior counsel in the law firm Sidley Austin LLP, where he works in the International Trade and Privacy and Cybersecurity areas. He is also a member of the advisory boards of the Centre for European Reform, the German Marshall Fund and the European Policy Centre. 

    In 2020, he authored the book Stars with Stripes: The Essential Partnership between the European Union and the United States (Palgrave McMillan).

    Don't miss the chance to be a part of this thought-provoking discussion about the special relationship between the United States and the European Union.

    invites you and a friend to join Laura Moore from "Story of a City" for a lively Zoom presentation on:

    The Life and Times of Monsieur, 

    Brother to the Sun King



    Everyone knows the story of King Louis XIV of France. The Sun King. He’s the longest reigning European monarch in history (although Queen Elizabeth is giving him a run for his money!)

    But how many people know the story of Louis’ dashing younger brother, Philippe? 

    Great care was taken during Philippe’s upbringing to ensure that he would not threaten his older brother’s reign, but nothing could stop him from causing a sensation at court time and time again. Military commander, notorious crossdresser, war hero, and lover of both men and women, Philippe cemented his place in history by founding the House of Orleans. Through the strategic marriages of his children and grandchildren, he eventually became known as the grandfather of Europe.

    Laura Moore moved to Paris on a whim, and six years later, France is still stuck with her. A typical freelancer, Laura holds many titles, including Event Manager, Theatre Producer, and Ghostwriter. Laura has worked as a tour guide in Paris since 2015, and in 2018, she founded Story of a City to bring together her love of storytelling and French history. Laura also writes weekly articles at Story of a City about Paris and her life in France, and writes a daily arts and culture blog at The Daily Hart.
