PA3 Book Club: May Meeting

April 27, 2018 - The book club will meet on Thursday, May 24, from 7-8:30 pm in East Pyne 111. Note this is one week earlier than our usual last Thursday, to avoid running into Reunions. And in the spirit of Reunions, our May selection is:

The Final Club, by Geoffrey Wolff '60: "The full coming-of-age of Nathaniel Clay, which occurs at the class of 1960's 20th reunion at Princeton, is the ironic theme of Wolff's emotionally and sociologically accurate novel, a work that combines nostalgia and cynicism to powerful effect."

--
The PA3 book club meets on the last Thursday evening of each month (except July, August & December) from 7-8:30, usually in East Pyne or Frist. Selections alternate (with occasional exceptions) between fiction and non-fiction, and the authors or books typically have a Princeton connection.

A list of all books the club has discussed can be found here.

Abacus: Small Enough to Jail, A Documentary

A4P - Princeton Area PA3 Presents

2018 ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEE - BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE

ABACUS: small enough to jail 

When: Wednesday, May 2, 4:30PM - 6:30PM 

Where: Princeton University, Whitman College Theatre 

 

From Steve James - Director of Hoop Dreams and Life Itself

ABACUS: small enough to jail tells the incredible saga of the Chinese immigrant Sung family, owners of Abacus Federal Savings of Chinatown, New York. Accused of mortgage fraud by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., Abacus becomes the only U.S. bank to face criminal charges in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. The indictment and subsequent trial forces the Sung family to defend themselves – and their bank’s legacy in the Chinatown community – over the course of a five-year legal battle."

Chanterelle Sung '00 plays herself in this Oscar nominated documentary.  She and her sisters Jill and Vera will visit Princeton and after the movie, serve on a Q&A panel moderated by Professor Beth Lew-Williams and Joyce Chen Shueh '96. Of the four Sung sisters, three were trained as lawyers, the fourth a physician — including Jill Sung, the bank’s chief executive, and Vera Sung, a director of the bank — and Chanterelle ‘00 who ironically once worked in the district attorney’s office that prosecuted the case.
