"As a founder of the nonprofit, nonpolitical group seeking to advance understanding between Americans and people in the Arab world, she had a dinner party Monday to spread the word," continues "The Buzz" column. Kathryn Fortune Hubbard is a 1974 graduate of DePauw University.

Susan Guyett writes, "Call it dinner-table diplomacy or an informal education session -- nothing raises awareness and camaraderie faster than a group of women enjoying a great meal.

Bridges of Understanding officials have been focusing on creating strategic alliances and communication channels between the women of the United States and Jordan."
