PA3 Book Club: November Meeting

Oct. 28, 2017 - The book club will meet on Thursday, November 30, from 7-8:30 pm in East Pyne 111. Continuing, loosely, with our recent F. Scott Fitzgerald theme, but with a turn to light entertainment, our November selection is

CAMINO ISLAND, by John Grisham

The book opens with the heist of Fitzgerald manuscripts from Firestone Library. (Library staff were good sports about it and invited Grisham to speak at Princeton, as reported here by the Prince.) 

Sneak preview: our selection for January is An Odyssey: A Father, a Son, and an Epic, by Daniel Mendelsohn *94.

The PA3 book club meets on the last Thursday of each month (except July, August & December) from 7-8:30 at a location on campus. Selections alternate between fiction and non-fiction, and the authors or books typically have a Princeton connection.

A list of all books the club has discussed can be found here.
