Friends of Princeton Public Library Thank Sponsors for Beyond Words 2020 Benefit

To the Editor:

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library want to thank their sponsors for Beyond Words 2020, the Friends’ annual benefit for Princeton Public Library. We are excited to be partnering with our speaker presenter, HarperCollins, to bring Beyond Words 2020 to a national stage.

This year Beyond Words will be a series of three virtual events with nationally renowned and thought-provoking speakers. Author David Remnick will be in conversation on November 7 with colleagues Henry Finder and Elizabeth Kolbert discussing his book The Fragile Earth. On December 5, Bakari Sellers will be joined by Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman discussing his book My Vanishing Country: A Memoir. The series will conclude on January 9 with Kate Andersen Brower discussing her book Team of Five: The Presidents Club in the Age of Trump, with Princeton Professor Kevin Kruse.

The loyalty of our sponsors helped make the needed expansion of the digital collections and virtual programming possible, enabling the library staff to do a tremendous job keeping us connected, informed, and entertained during these unusual times.

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library thank you for your generosity in supporting the library’s efforts to “cultivate curiosity.”
