Woody Allen has been donating his papers to Princeton University since 1980. Next weekend, devotees will be able to see the notoriously private filmmaker in the flesh.

Allen is scheduled to participate in a sold-out question-and-answer session at the school on Sunday.

The university's library holds 48 boxes of Allen's papers that include artifacts such as an unproduced script written when he was 20 and handwritten drafts of scripts that form his body of produced work.

The Times of Trenton reports a display of several scripts including "Manhattan," "Annie Hall" and "Hannah and Her Sisters" will be displayed at the Firestone Library for a week beginning Monday.

Allen is known for avoiding public ceremonies, and passed up the 1978 Academy Awards when he won Best Director for "Annie Hall."
