F. Scott Fitzgerald: From Princeton To Paradise

F. Scott Fitzgerald: From Princeton To Paradise

To celebrate the centenary of F. Scott Fitzgerald's time at Princeton, the Princeton Club of New York is proud to launch the first event in its "Gatsby" series, a group of Fitzgerald-themed events throughout 2017 to celebrate the life and work of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Renowned lecturer Charles Scribner III '73*75*77 will speak about his family's relationship with Fitzgerald and his own ties to Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby, the definitive American novel of the past century. From the beginning of Fitzgerald's career, his novels were proudly published by Charles Scribner's Sons.

As a sophomore at Princeton, this Charles Scribner- a fifth generation Princetonian - settled down for an evening train ride to Philadelphia with a silver flask and a copy of The Diamond as Big as the Ritz. Four decades later, Scribner offers an evening reflection on his long attachment to Fitzgerald.

Trained as an art historian at Princeton, Scribner has been a popular speaker at numerous venues, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The National Gallery, The Frick Collection and The Morgan Library.

Co-Sponsored by the Princeton Association of New York City (PANYC) and the Princeton Club of NYC

Cost: Free for Princeton Club of NYC members***;  $15 for non-members (RSVP here: LINK)

(*** N.B.  Princeton Club of NYC members must book their tickets directly through the PCNY website or contact eburhans@princetonclub.com)

Reinventing Your Career To Drive Social Impact

Reinventing Your Career To Drive Social Impact

Inertia is a concept just as real in an individual's professional life as it is in his or her physical one.  It is for this reason that some of us get stuck on a professional trajectory early on in our careers and are unable to change course, despite our passions and best intentions.  We can find ourselves thinking back on earlier dreams of graduating college and changing the world, only to feel uninspired by what we're doing now.  So how do we "reboot"?  How can we make a change in our lives or careers to drive social impact without a seismic shift in our lifestyle?  And what tools can assist us in making that transition?

On April 3, 2017, at 6:00pm, at the Princeton Club of New York (15 W 43rd St, between 5th and 6th Aves), come hear your fellow Tigers discuss how they made strategic career choices to advance social impact causes.  

Note that tickets include cocktails and/or a glass of wine from 6:00 - 6:30pm.

Event Schedule:
- Cocktails & Networking:              6:00pm
- Panel Discussion, then Q&A         6:30pm

40 Plus Salon Dinner & Book Party with Author Joel Whitney on the CIA

Please join us for an informal dinner, discussion and book party hosted by John Oakes ‘83 and Carin Kuoni at their loft in Chelsea on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at 7:00 pm. John is co-publisher of OR Books (www.orbooks.com), a new company that is "culturally adventurous and politically progressive.”

The dinner will include a discussion by Joel Whitney of his new book, FINKS: How the C.I.A. Tricked the World’s Best Writers.   When news broke that the CIA had colluded with literary magazines to produce cultural propaganda throughout the Cold War, a debate began that has never been resolved. The story continues to unfold, with the reputations of some of America’s best-loved literary figures—including Peter Matthiessen, George Plimpton, and Richard Wright—tarnished as their work for the intelligence agency has come to light. Finks is a tale of two CIAs, and how they blurred the line between propaganda and literature.

Joel is a cofounder and editor at large of Guernica: A Magazine of Art & Politics. His writing has appeared in The New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalThe New RepublicDissent, Salon, NPR, New York Magazine and elsewhere. With photographer Brett Van Ort, he co-wrote the TED Talks ebook on landmine eradication, Minescape. His poetry has appeared in The Paris ReviewThe Nation, and Agni.

This event is part of the Princeton Association of New York City's (PANYC)40 PLUS SALON program where small groups of Princetonians over 40, parents of current students, and their guests come together in informal intimate settings. The event is limited to a total of 30 people.
