A Local History of Tuckerton, New Jersey State Library

Share:


Thursday May 20, 2021
10:00 AM

Sit down with Joel Mott, the Commission’s Principal Public Programs Specialist, as he describes the local history of Tuckerton as it has been passed down by 10 generations of his relatives who have lived in the area since the early 1700’s. Nestled between Barnegat Bay and the Pinelands, Tuckerton was a great place to grow up and learn about the connections between natural resources and the people who utilized them to make a living. This experience has led Mott to a career studying and interpreting both history and nature. This webinar is being hosted by the NJ Pinelands Commission and will be streamed on the Pinelands Commission’s YouTube Channel.

Share:


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

Share:


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.
