Virtual Tour of Historic Princeton

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.

Summary: Vivian Miller is a dedicated CIA counterintelligence analyst assigned to uncover the leaders of Russian sleeper cells in the United States. On track for a much-needed promotion, she's developed a system for identifying Russian agents, seemingly normal people living in plain sight. After accessing the computer of a potential Russian operative, Vivian stumbles on a secret dossier of deep-cover agents within America's borders. A few clicks later, everything that matters to her--her job, her husband, even her four children--are threatened. Vivian has vowed to defend her country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. But now she's facing impossible choices. Torn between loyalty and betrayal, allegiance and treason, love and suspicion, who can she trust? -- Provided by Publisher
