PA3 Book Club: April 25, 2019

March 23, 2019 - The book club will meet on Thursday, April 25, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in East Pyne 111. Our selection is:

Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Hodder Fellow at Princeton, 2005-06). 

Here's how it starts: "Princeton, in the summer, smelled of nothing, and although Ifemelu liked the tranquil greenness of the many trees, the clean streets and stately homes, the delicately overpriced shops, and the quiet, abiding air of earned grace, it was this, the lack of a smell, that most appealed to her, perhaps because the other American cities she knew well had all smelled distinctly."

The PA3 book club meets on the last Thursday evening of each month (except July, August & December) from 7-8:30, usually in East Pyne or Frist. Selections alternate, with occasional exceptions, between fiction and non-fiction, and the authors or books typically have a Princeton connection. Book club meetings are open to all PA3 members and their spouses/partners, and no RSVP is needed.
