A Chance to Dine with a founder of YSEC

Dinner in Branford College Dining Hall, Monday, 11/5/12, 6 p.m. with Florence Williams

YSEC is invited to join Florence Williams, founder of YSEC, for dinner in Branford, either in the small dining room just beyond the fireplace at the far end of the dining hall or perhaps at a table near the fireplace.  This will be a fun chance to hear about the early days of the Yale Student Environmental Coalition and about the modern work of an environmental writer. Acclaimed popular science writer and Yale Fellow, Carl Zimmer, plans to be in attendance as well.

If anyone wants to look at some articles by Florence William, a collection is at <http://www.florencewilliams.com/article>, and here are three for easy reference:
