Summer Reading: Shirley Tilghman
Our summer reading series profiles Shirley Tilghman, president of Princeton University. Formerly a professor of molecular biology at Princeton, Tilghman says her new job has broadened her reading interests. She's been listening to Robert Caro's Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson (Alfred A. Knopf; ISBN: 0394528360). She's recently read Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland (Penguin Books; ISBN: 0142002402) by Jan T. Gross and is looking forward to reading Reclaiming the Game (Princeton University Press; ISBN: 0691116202) by William Bowen and Sarah Levin.
