A Salon on Stockton Street
Gladstone's Library is taking part in a Salon on Stockton Street - a literary festival in Princeton, NJ taking place June 24 - 25.
Stockton Street is one of the most historic streets in the United States. George Washington marched his army along it, en route to victory at Yorktown. Richard Stockton, a Signer of the Declaration of Independence, had his home here. It stands today as the Morven Museum and Garden.
Now Morven is joining its neighbor on Stockton Street, the Center of Theological Inquiry, and their friend across the Atlantic, Gladstone's Library, to host a literary salon that will take you back in time to 18th Century Princeton.This time the pen will be mightier than the sword as authors Sarah Perry, Andrew Nicoll, Stella Duffy and James Robertson all talk about their novels!
