Join Princeton alumni on a personalized, unique gallery tour with the author of the book which was written for the exhibit by Princeton alum, Diane Harris Cline (PhD *91).  Take an extraordinary journey through 5,000 years of Greekculture in this world-class exhibit celebrating kings, scholars, poets, and philosophers. “The Greeks: Agamemnon to Alexander the Great” is a once-in-a-lifetime exhibition featuring more than 500 priceless treasures—many of which never have been displayed outside of Greece—from 21 Greek museums. Discover how the ancient Greeks saw themselves, their society, and their gods. Explore pivotal moments that led to the birth of Western democracy, philosophy, and theater, and learn how Greek culture continues to shape the modern arts, science, medicine, and sports.


After the tour, there will be an opportunity for Diane to autograph books in the National Geographic gift shop. Her book, published June 7, is National Geographic The Greeks: An Illustrated History
