If you’ve got nothing to do and want some arts and culture all up in your life, you should get in your car, tune into WPRB and drive over to check out some of these events.
(Alternatively, you could take public transportation and listen to WPRB on a mobile device. That would potentially be even cooler.)
The New Jim Crow Read-Out
Sunday, April 7 – Saturday April 13
every night from 5-6 PM
Hinds Plaza in front of the Princeton Public Library
The New Jim Crow movement wants to bring attention to problems in our prison systems, especially racial issues influencing African-American and Hispanic-American citizens.
Every evening will be a chance to hear selections from Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow and to listen to people who have been imprisoned or have worked with inmates.
The Jersey Shore Rolley Girls are having open Walk-Ins on the 3rd of April, so if you’ve always wanted to be in a roller derby, or if you just want a chance to try out a new fun thing, head on down to the Jackson Roller Magic at 9PM with a mouthguard, work out attire and health insurance.
If you’re more of a watcher (or don’t have health insurance), the JSRG are having an actual derby on April 6th at Ashbury Convention Hall.
Princyclopedia 2013: A Journey to the Centre of the Earth
Saturday, April 6th
10 AM – 3 PM
Dillon Gymnasium of Princeton University
Last week, we clued you into a bunch of stuff you could do with your kid, and we wanted to add in one more potential adventure. Princeton’s Cotsen Children’s Library is hosting a Jules Verne themed event this Saturday, and your child should absolutely be there.
According to the website, you can expect crystals, volcanoes, rocks, ancient pre-Columbian instruments… and dinosaurs.
There will be a “live” life-size baby Tyrannosaurus Rex (and a smaller, gentler baby Hadrosaur for younger dinosaur enthusiasts).
