March 1 Book Club Meeting

All:

Our February meeting will take place on Tuesday, March 1st at 7pm in East Pyne 111.

Book Selection:

The Fisherman by Chigozie Obioma (short-list for the 2015 Man Booker Prize, which was chaired by Princeton Comparative Literature Professor, Michael Wood: read more here)

  • The Fishermen is set in a small town in Nigeria in the mid-1990s. Four brothers, the youngest is nine, use their strict father's absence from home to go fishing in a forbidden river and encounter a dangerous local madman, Abulu, whose mystic prophecy of violence threatens the very core of their close-knit family. He predicts that one of the brothers – a fisherman – will kill another. This evil prophecy of violence causes a deep rift between the brothers and starts to break the deep fraternal bonds, unleashing a tragic chain of events. Told by shy nine-year-old Benjamin, The Fishermen combines classic African storytelling with contemporary fiction, and illuminates Nigeria in all its historical, political and cultural complexity.

Enjoy!

PA3 Book Club January Meeting

Hello all: Please join us on Tuesday, January 26th at 7pm in East Pyne 127 for our January Book Club Meeting to discuss Far From the Tree by Andrew Solomon, former lecturer at Princeton

In Brief: "Solomon’s startling proposition is that diversity is what unites us all. He writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, multiple severe disabilities, with children who are prodigies, who are conceived in rape, who become criminals, who are transgender. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal. In Solomon’s telling, these stories are everyone’s stories." (

First Friday Lunch - January 8th, 2016

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 their guests 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 candidate will present his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!  Have a look at our impressive roster of previous luncheons.

On Friday, January 8th, 2016, we will be joined by Carlee Joe-Wong, a PhDCarlee Joe-Wong Candidate in the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics.  Carlee's work focuses primarily on mathematical and economic aspects of computer networking and she is particularly interested in applying theoretical insights to practical system deployments.  Her doctoral work is partially supported by the NDSEG and Jacobus Fellowships.  Carlee is co-founder of startup company DataMi, which grew out of her Smart Data Pricing research at Princeton.  The company's products are deployed by internet service providers around the world, including AT&T, Airtel and Orange

As always, there is sure to be a lively discussion! Please join us.


Specially priced at $25/person (or $30 if you choose not to pay PA3's annual dues), lunch includes three courses, a complementary beverage (wine, beer, soft drink) and coffee/tea. Pre-registration is preferred.
