The featured speaker will be Dr. Katharina Bernau-Seiguer, founder of the San Francisco Coffee Company, a German company rooted in an American idea and customer service model. Dr. Bernau-Seiguer, who studied law in Bayreuth, Lausanne, and Munich and has a Phd. in IP and copyright law fron Max Planck Institute, worked at a California law firm in Silicon Valley before returning to Germany and starting her company as sole founder of SFCC in 1999. Her husband followed her into the business about six months later. Dr. Bernau-Seiguer is on the forefront of business trends and will speak about this topic as well as about improving customer service and women in business. She no doubt will inspire us!

April Book Club

Come join us to discuss Marilynne Robinson's much anticipated Novel, Gilead. The 77 year old Reverend Ames is told he only has a few months to live and starts to pen a letter to his young son. What unfolds is a wonderful memoir of his life in which he shares his views on family, love, religion. The result is a testimony of struggle and faith over three generations that's more intimate and revealing than most parents can articulate in decades. According to reviewer Ron Charles, of the Christian Science Monitor, "There are passages here of such profound, hard-won wisdom and spiritual insight that they make your own life seem richer."
