Thanking Participants, Sponsors, Donors For Successful Beyond Words Event

To the Editor:

The Friends of the Princeton Public Library would like to thank everyone who joined us on November 7 for the first evening of our Beyond Words 2020. The conversation with David Remnick, Henry Finder, and Elizabeth Kolbert was engaging and thought-provoking  — ranging from climate change to the role of the media in public discourse to the politics of the day. We are grateful to HarperCollins Publishers, to our lead sponsor, The Gould Group, and to all of our individual donors and corporate sponsors for making Beyond Words 2020 a success.

The second evening of Beyond Words 2020 is Saturday, December 5 at 7 p.m. on Crowdcast with Bakari Sellers in conversation with Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, discussing Mr. Sellers’ memoir, My Vanishing Country. Our third evening will be on Saturday, January 9, 2021 at 7 p.m. on Crowdcast with Kate Andersen Brower discussing her book Team of Five: The Presidents Club in the Age of Trump with Princeton Professor Kevin Kruse. Separate tickets for each of these events are now available on the Library’s website for $100 each, which includes the digital link and a hardback copy of the speaker’s recent book.

Beyond Words 2020 is a true community event, from our partnership with Labyrinth Books to joining forces with ten local restaurants to offer Food for Thought, delicious take-away meals to enhance our supporters’ viewing experience. In these unusual times, the Library’s role as a center of our community has continued to expand, as has the importance of the generous commitment of our donors and sponsors.

We thank all of our “Friends” and look forward to another great program on December 5.  If you haven’t yet bought your tickets, we invite you to join us for an upcoming Beyond Words program in support of the Library. Don’t forget to order your Food for Thought!
