You are cordially invited to attend a special event, sponsored by The Friends of CSI, to benefit scholarships at CSI:
Literary Brunch
Sunday May 3, 2015
11:00am - 2:00pm
Library, Second Floor
Featuring Ava Chin, PhD, Associate Professor of English, will discuss her book,
Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love, and the Perfect Meal
$65 per person, payable to CSI Foundation, Inc.
Explore the joys of foraging for wild edibles in New York City with CSI faculty author and former NY Times Urban Forager, Ava Chin, who was recently featured on PBS’s The Victory Garden. Prof. Chin will discuss identifying, preparing, and enjoying the edible plants, herbs, and mushrooms native to New York City. Her recent book, Eating Wildly: Foraging for Life, Love, and the Perfect Meal (Simon & Schuster 2014), is a food memoir about being raised in Flushing, NY by a single mother and loving Chinese grandparents. Eating Wildly reveals how foraging and the DIY-food movement helped the author to reconcile her past and taught her important lessons in self-reliance. Please join us for an interesting presentation and tasty brunch to benefit scholarships at CSI.
To RSVP, please contact Donna Elwell, Office of Institutional Advancement , X2365 or donna.elwell@csi.cuny.edu

Don't miss CSI's Inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Symposium Tuesday, April 28th at 2:30pm in the Center for the Arts.
Keynote presentation: Microaggressions in Everyday Life by author Dr. Derald Wing Sue.
To learn more about the key concepts of Microaggressions in Everyday Life, view Dr. Sue's presentation at: www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJL2P0JsAS4Y
Dr. Sue’s keynote will be followed by a panel discussion on diversity-related “Best Practices: Challenges, Opportunities, and Successes” in higher education.
“Dr. Sue’s presentation is sure to spark many significant conversations across campus,” comments Dr. William J. Fritz, president of CSI. “I encourage all students, faculty, and staff to attend this important event.”
Dr. Derald Wing Sue, professor with the School of Social Work at Teachers College, Columbia University, was born in Portland, Oregon, to parents who emigrated from China. Because of a personal life-changing experience with racism directed toward his family, Dr. Sue’s research has progressively turned to the psychology of racism and antiracism, and has led him to become one of the most prominent voices in cross-cultural studies.
Tuesday’s Inaugural Diversity and Inclusion Symposium is a component of the College’s Faculty Diversity Strategic Plan, which was developed by the College-wide Diversity Council and the Faculty Subcommittee.
PG/CC CLUE event for CSI students.
For more information, please call Dr. Wilma Jones, Associate Dean and Chief Librarian, 718.982.4001. In addition, please RSVP your attendance to odc@csi.cuny.edu
