Meeting Method: Virtual ‘Zoom’ Gathering

Monthly Roundtable, Central NJ Women in Development (WID)

Thursday May 20, 2021
12:00 PM

Social Listening is a way to monitor your organization, activities, and associations throughout social media, but not exclusively focused on analytics. It is more than following a share or a hashtag. It is a strategy to learn how your organization is being discussed (or not) through your social networks. This session is a basic introduction and will answer questions like: "What is social learning?;" "Why is it important?;" and "How can we stop talking at my community and start listening to them?"

Place: Online using ZOOM technology

Presenters: WID Board Member Devon McGuinness

Cost: FREE to WID Members; $15 for non-members

Great Minds Salon: Jane Austen, Superstar: From Classic Author to Pop-Culture Phenomenon

Thursday May 20, 2021
8:00 PM

Sponsored by The Jewish Center Princeton - Register to receive Zoom link

Deborah Yaffe, an award-winning journalist and author, has been a passionate Jane Austen fan since first reading Pride and Prejudice at age ten. She joined the Jane Austen Society of North America at sixteen; owns an impressive collection of Austen-themed coffee mugs, bookmarks, tote bags, and DVDs; and works from a home office presided over by a Jane Austen Action Figure. As a newspaper reporter in New Jersey and California for more than thirteen years, Yaffe covered education, the law, and state government. Her first book, Other People’s Children: The Battle for Justice and Equality in New Jersey’s Schools, is a gripping narrative history of the state’s efforts to provide equal educational opportunities to rich and poor schoolchildren. Her second book, Among the Janeites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom, was published in August 2013 to excellent reviews; the New York Times Book Review called it “amusing and sometimes mind-boggling.” Yaffe, a longtime member of the Jewish Center, works as a freelance writer and lives in Princeton Junction. She and her husband have two now-adult children, both graduates of TJC’s religious school.
