Bernie Langs of The Rockefeller University Development Office announces the release of his book, The Plot, authored by Langs and co-edited by Development’s Mary Jane Folan. Langs’ novella follows two actors filming a story of espionage in Florence, Italy. As they film, the fiction of their script begins to creep into their reality.
