I just received my Cambridge University alumni bulletin, and was happily surprised to find The Philosophical Breakfast Club on the list of “Cambridge Authors: Summer Reading Selection 2012,” joining books by Stephen Fry, Andrew Preston, Simon Sebag Montefiore, Ian Tattersall, Claire Tomalin, and other Cambridge faculty/alumni. Still time to get your last bit of summer reading in. . . .
I had such a fun time at the “Food for Thought” lunch at the Century Club on Thursday! The group of Cambridge alumni and their guests were so receptive to my story about another group of Cambridge alumni. The book seller at the event even ran out of copies of The Philosophical Breakfast Club!
Below are some photos from the event.
. . . photos from my Cambridge in America event at the Century Club, possibly the video as well, and a really, really exciting announcement!
I am looking forward to tomorrow’s “Food For Thought” luncheon and talk at the Century Association in New York City, sponsored by Cambridge in America. There is still time for Cambridge University alumni and guests to register at www.cantab.org! For more information, and to register, see here.
The Cambridge in America group has put a nice announcement of my May 3rd “Food for Thought” luncheon on their website (it’s the second screen that appears after you get onto the site; or you can click here for the direct link).
I’m very excited about the opportunity to meet fellow Cambridge alumni and their guests over lunch! And I’m very pleased that we will be meeting in the Century Association, a London-style club founded in 1847 by William Cullen Bryant which was intended for “Artists, Literary Men, Scientists, Physicians, Officers of the Army and Navy, members of the Bench and Bar, Engineers, Clergymen, Representatives of the Press, Merchants and men of leisure.” (The club finally began to admit women members in 1989.) So it will be an occasion to chat about The Philosophical Breakfast Club in an actual club! I look forward to seeing friends and fans of the book on May 3rd.
