LINSANITY: The NJ Premiere!

Princeton Garden Theater, Nassau Street, Princeton

The Princeton Area Alumni Association (PA3) in association with the Asian American Alumni Association of Princeton (A4P) proudly sponsor the New Jersey opening of the country’s hottest documentary, “Linsanity.” Even the most casual basketball fan knows the story of Jeremy Lin’s explosion into our consciousness as he and his New York Knick teammates created one dramatic win after another last year in a season that seemed to be going nowhere.

Join us for what may be the only two showings of Linsanity in New Jersey on Friday, October 11th @ 7:00 pm and 9:00 pm.

Tickets must be purchased in advance via this web page. Students purchasing discounted tickets must show a valid student ID when picking your tickets up at will call on the evening of the 11th. We hope to see you there!

Tickets are

$15.00 General Admission

$7.50 for Students and Dues Paying PA3 members

TICKETS MUST NOW BE PURCHASED AT THE BOX OFFICE ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS. Approximately 60% of the tickets were sold via the pre-sale.

PA3 Exclusive Conversation with Professor Joyce Carol Oates -- Nov. 7th 7:30 pm

On Thursday evening, November 7, 2013 beginning at 7:30 pm, PA3 will host an exclusive "informal conversation" with author and long-time Princeton professor Joyce Carol Oates on her most recent novel, The Accursed, which is set in, and largely about, Princeton during the years 1905-1906. The book is based on remarkable research about a famous era, when Woodrow Wilson, Grover Cleveland, Upton Sinclair Louis Armour, and other notables lived and interacted in town and on campus.

The event will be held at the Princeton home of Andrew (’66) and Anya (’73) Littauer, who have kindly agreed to host. Because this is a private home, space is limited and participation must be restricted to 20 PA3 members. We expect this event to be oversubscribed.

Registration is necessary and will close on Friday, October 18. If we have more registrants than 20, remaining spaces will be allocated by lottery, with priority for dues-paying members.

Reading the book in advance of the event is essential and participants are expected to arrive at the venue by 7:20 pm. Professor Oates will not give a formal lecture; the event will be more in the nature of a precept.

For registration, contact George L. Bustin ’70 at

First Friday Lunch - Oct 4

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 meet to enjoy a prix fixe luncheon buffet at the Nassau Club in downtown Princeton.  As a special bonus for PA3, a Princeton PhD candidate presents his/her work to the group in this informal setting.  Topics vary monthly and are always interesting!

This month, we are joined by Matthew Howard, a regular at PA3 events and a grad student in Molecular Biology.
In pre-Halloween fashion, he will speak about BRAINS! Areas in the brain talk to one another via connections existing between brain cells.  Some viruses capable of infecting brain cells can travel along these lines of communication.  When engineered to give off fluorescence these viruses can be used as tracers, allowing scientists to visualize connections in the brain as they travel. In areas of the brain associated with autism, such as the cerebellum, identifying and understanding disorder-relevant "neural networks" using these tracers in a mouse model will likely lead to greater progress in characterizing the human disorder. 

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

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

Date: Friday, October 4, 2013
Time: 12 noon - 2:00 pm
Location: Nassau Club, 6 Mercer St, Princeton, NJ
Nassau Club membership is not necessary to attend this event.
For more information, contact Lydia Zaininger '83 .

A conversation with Woody

Here's a special deal for PA3 members: 


A Conversation with Woody Allen


On October 27th, Woody Allen (whose papers are being housed at Firestone Library) will have a “conversation” in Richardson Auditorium at 4 pm.  If you are a member of the Friends of the Princeton University Library, you have already received notice of your priority ticketing.  But if you are not, by special arrangement with the FPUL, PA 3 members who join the Friends by September 25 will also qualify for the priority seating, so join today!  There is some chance that priority seating will be exhausted earlier, but, regardless, PA3  members will get seating in the balcony.”  Joining is very easy at – and in addition to this event, as a member you will get three issues of the Princeton University Library Chronicle per year, as well as invitations to over a dozen other events including a dinner by biographer and former Trustee A. Scott Berg ’71 and author of the recent biography (and soon to be movie) of Woodrow Wilson 1879, “small talks” lectures, exhibition openings and more.
