First Friday Lunch - September 5th, 2014 - Andrew Ledford/Dept of Sociology

Join us for First Fridays, a monthly recurring event for undergraduate and graduate Princeton alumni, graduate students, and parents.  On the first Friday of each month, area alumni and theiruests will meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton University PhD student will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at this impressive roster of our past luncheon speakers.

In September, we will be joined by Andrew Ledford, a PhD student in the Department of Sociology.  Andrew will visit with us again to talk with us about his project on Iranian Studies.  

Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes the Nassau Club’s appetizer, main course and dessert as well as a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink). Pre-registration is preferred.

>> Looking forward to seeing your orange and black! <<

PA3 Book Club

Hello PA3 community members!

I’m excited to announce that I, Linsay Hiller ’08, have volunteered to organize a PA3 Book Club. The club will be open to all ages and is intended to be a low-key, flexible club that will appeal to a variety of interests and backgrounds.

Please reach out to me directly at for more information and to express your interest in being a part of the club. I have prepared a tentative plan for the club, but I am open to any and all suggestions – this is meant to be a group effort and I’m looking forward to collaborating with the area’s many book lovers!

Meetings Schedule: The club will meet approximately six times a year, give or take.

Club Organization: For the time being, I will serve as the club’s manager and handle all organizational aspects. However, once the club is in motion, it is anticipated that the active members will work together to pick and schedule locations, books, and dates.

Meetings Organization: Each meeting will have a leader – ie. one person who has done some external research on the book, the author, the subject matter, the time period, etc. and will be able to lead the discussion and present questions and interesting discussion topics to the group. That being said, all participants are encouraged to come to the meeting with their own questions and interesting facts!

Book Selection: Books will be selected by popular vote. Participants in each meeting are encouraged, but not required, to bring to the meeting a suggested book to read for the following meeting. The participants in that meeting will then vote on the next book.

Suggested First Meeting: September 2nd at 7pm. The meeting location is TBD, but will likely be on Princeton’s campus or in town, depending on the group size.

Suggested First Book: The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from the community!
