First Friday Lunch - December 2017

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.

Robin Resch

Is it possible for photography and architecture to intersect? Can an image have structure? On Friday, December 1st, we will be joined by Robin Resch *03/Architecture, who is both a photographer and an architect.  She strives to combine key elements of each discipline in distinct and refreshing ways.  'Of Rock and Salt,' Robin's exhibit of fine art photography presently on display at the Nassau Club, comprises contemplative and emotive images where the importance of horizon, or lack of perceivable horizon, come into play.  Join us to hear Robin's insights into creative design and learn how she innovates with techniques and materials.
 

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 soft drink and coffee/tea. [**Wine/beer offered a la carte**] 
Pre-registration is preferred.

In 2012, Evans led PA3 members in a fascinating precept-like session discussing the complex diplomacy between the DPRK, the USA and China.  Clearly, this issue has moved to the forefront of foreign policy concerns, and Evans remains deeply involved. We're most fortunate that he has agreed to revisit this topic with PA3. Space is limited, so please RSVP to Tom Swift at tswift@alumni.princeton.edu.

More about Evans: Evans Revere '76 graduated with a degree in East Asian studies. He retired from the foreign service in 2007, having served in numerous capacities including  Acting Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, managing U.S. relations with the Asia-Pacific region and leading an organization of 950 American diplomats and 2,500 Foreign Service National employees. He has been a visiting lecturer at the Woodrow Wilson School and CEO of the Korea Society. He is currently a Senior Advisor to the Albright Stonebridge Group, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has traveled to Pyongyang many times. He posts frequently on Brookings "Order from Chaos" blog, such as this September post.
