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.

Cambridge in America Event: May 3rd

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.
