Please join us for Friday EVENINGS WITH FRIENDS at the Princeton Public Library: intimate evenings with acclaimed authors and experts in lively conversations where you can join the discussion at the end. This new winter series is sure to stimulate your mind.
Mix and mingle with Friends in the Library's Community Room which will be transformed into a supper club and salon for the evening. Starting at 6:30pm, light fare and drinks will be served buffet-style with plenty of table seating available. At 7:30, the conversation will begin and can be enjoyed from the comfort of your table. Afterwards, imbibe in dessert, coffee, and more discussions with our guests. A truly memorable evening!
EMILY RABOTEAU & ALBERT RABOTEAU
A FATHER-DAUGHTER CONVERSATION
Emily Raboteau’s first non-fiction book is SEARCHING FOR ZION: The Quest for Home in the African Diaspora. The book is the result of 10 years of research, and began when she visited a friend in Israel and realized that she, a biracial woman who grew up in an America still divided along racial lines, had never felt as easily at home as her friend did in Israel.
Albert J. Raboteau came to Princeton in 1982 and is the Henry W. Putman Professor of Religion at Princeton University. He is one of the nation’s foremost authorities on African-American religious history.
