Spring Book Lovers Luncheon, Friends of the Princeton Public Library

Thursday April 29, 2021
11:00 AM

The 2021 Book Lovers Luncheon, hosted by the Friends of the Princeton Public Library, will be held virtually on Thursday, April 29, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tickets for the annual event are on sale now through the library’s website. Proceeds benefit the library. Erin French, owner of the acclaimed restaurant The Lost Kitchen in Freedom, Maine, and author of the recently released memoir “Finding Freedom: A Cook’s Story; Remaking a Life from Scratch” is this year’s featured speaker.

French’s story is a hard-fought one with multiple rock-bottoms. Her book reveals the passion and courage she needed to reinvent herself and slowly rebuild her personal and culinary life around the solace she found in food — as a source of comfort, a sense of place and as a way of bringing goodness to the world.

Virtual Tour of Historic Princeton, MCLS

Thursday April 29, 2021
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

From Princeton's humble beginnings as a stage coach stop and tavern halfway between New York City and Philadelphia, it has grown to become a center for learning and culture. George Washington walked its streets and three other United States Presidents James Madison, Woodrow Wilson and Grover Cleveland, lived in Princeton. Thomas Mann, T.S. Eliot and F. Scott Fitzgerald all wrote in Princeton. Actor Paul Robeson spent his childhood here; his father, William Drew Robeson, was pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church. World-renowned scientists Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer made the town their home. It served as the home of the first Continental Congress and as the capitol in 1783. In this virtual tour, you will get a bird's eye view of many of the historic buildings and important sights adorning the town and campus.

Presented by Eve Mandel, Director of Programs and Visitor Services at the Historical Society of Princeton. Please join us for the tour. Sponsored by the Friends of the Lawrence Branch. Registration with an email is required, so we can send you a link to connect through GoToMeeting. You will receive the link approximately 24 hours before the program.
