The Sandra Day O'Connor Institute presented its annual History Dinner at the Arizona Biltmore. This year, "Dinner With Jefferson" was the theme with Pulitzer Prize winner and Presidential historian Jon Meacham as the featured guest speaker.
"Society, at all levels, has a need to work together to solve the many challenges facing our state and nation. I know that it is possible for people to sit down together and engage in cooperative problem solving. My hope is to re-create a place that will be a center for problem-solving and for bringing together groups with divergent views. This is what I want the O'Connor Institute to stand for. We can do it. The possibilities are endless."
