Cornell New Student Reading Project Book

Copies of the book have been provided to the book club by the University Provost's office. Please contact Matt Nagowski, matthew.nagowski@gmail.com , to learn how to obtain a copy.
Some Cornell Classes also mail out copies - so you may have already received one. Several Cornell professors will give lectures on campus related to the book, and they should be available online early in September.

HOST: Nancy Spector

DATE: Oct 14
TIME :7:00 PM
TITLE & AUTHOR: Snow in August by Pete Hamill
"In 1940s Brooklyn, friendship between an 11-year-old Irish Catholic boy and an elderly Jewish rabbi might seem as unlikely as, well, snow in August. But the relationship between young Michael Devlin and Rabbi Judah Hirsch is only one of the many miracles large and small contained in Pete Hamill's novel." Amazon

JULY
DATE:July 8
TIME: 7:00 PM
TITLE & AUTHOR: The Trial by Franz Kafka
"A terrifying psychological trip into the life of one Joseph K., an ordinary man who wakes up one day to find himself accused of a crime he did not commit, a crime whose nature is never revealed to him. Once arrested, he is released, but must report to court on a regular basis--an event that proves maddening, as nothing is ever resolved. As he grows more uncertain of his fate, his personal life--including work at a bank and his relations with his landlady and a young woman who lives next door--becomes increasingly unpredictable. As K. tries to gain control, he succeeds only in accelerating his own excruciating downward spiral." (from Amazon)
HOST: Matt Nagowski

AUGUST
DATE: August 12
TIME: 7:00 PM
TITLE & AUTHOR: All the King's Men by Robert Penn Warren
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize. "This landmark book is a loosely fictionalized account of Governor Huey Long of Louisiana, one of the nation's most astounding politicians. All the King's Men tells the story of Willie Stark, a southern-fried politician who builds support by appealing to the common man and playing dirty politics with the best of the back-room deal-makers. Though Stark quickly sheds his idealism, his right-hand man, Jack Burden -- who narrates the story -- retains it and proves to be a thorn in the new governor's side. Stark becomes a successful leader, but at a very high price." (from Amazon)
HOST: Pat Potts

Albright-Knox Art Gallery Tour of "One Another: Spiderlike, I Spin Mirrors"

On Saturday May 17 at 11am join the Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo on a tour through the current special exhibit, "One Another: Spiderlike, I Spin Mirrors". The tour will be lead by Nancy Spector, '82, and attendance will be limited so register now.

This exhibition, drawn primarily from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery's Collection, considers the creative impulses of some of the most influential female artists of our time. Taking its title from a photograph by Janine Antoni (Bahamian, born 1964) and the poem "Childless Woman" by Sylvia Plath (American, 1932-1963), it focuses on the reciprocal nature of relationships, both real and imagined, and the complexity of their cultivation, sustainability, and occasional destruction. Human relationships evolve within social contexts that play a critical role in defining their parameters and possibilities. The artists assembled in One Another are ever mindful of the social roles they inhabit as women and as artists, and their works provide moments for reflection upon our own relationships and humanity.

Annual Meeting and Cornell Faculty Lecture is May 5

Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo - Annual Meeting and Cornell Faculty Lecture featuring Ron Ehrenberg: "Is the Golden Age of the Private Research University Over?"

May 5, 2014 6 p.m.
The Buffalo Club, Millard Fillmore Room
388 Delaware Avenue
Buffalo, N.Y.

Registration: $40 per person
Note: Business attire is required, including jackets and ties for men.

The Cornell Club of Greater Buffalo, in cooperation with Cornell University's School of Industrial and Labor Relations and Office of Alumni Affairs, cordially invites Cornellians and their guests to our annual meeting:

Ronald G. Ehrenberg, PhD, Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and Economics, Cornell University, Director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute,
and Member of the SUNY Board of Trustees.

Reception to begin at six o'clock, with food served at six-thirty; featuring a cabaret style dinner, including: Assorted fruits and cheeses * Over Roasted Turkey Breast with Whole Grain Mustard and Cranberry Compote * Cheese Tortellini and Tomato Vinaigrette * Curried Cauliflower and Chick Pea with Pine Nuts * Club Dressed Celery Cabbage with Lentils * Desserts and Coffee Service * Cash Bar

In the wake of the global financial crisis, and amidst significant upheavals in student demographics, federal research funding, debt levels, technological change, and regulatory policy, there is significant concern that the golden age of selective private universities like Cornell is over and that their financial models are breaking down. Ehrenberg will discuss his experiences and observations from his career of studying the economics of higher education, while painting his vision of the future for these institutions.

An internationally recognized expert on the economics of higher education, Ronald G. Ehrenberg is the Irving M. Ives Professor of Industrial and Labor Relations and Economics at Cornell University and a Stephen H. Weiss Presidential Fellow. He also is Director of the Cornell Higher Education Research Institute.

From 1995 to 1998 he served as Cornell's Vice President for Academic Programs, Planning and Budgeting. Ehrenberg served as an elected member of the Cornell Board of Trustees from July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2010. New York State Governor David Paterson nominated him for membership on the SUNY Board of Trustees in 2009. A graduate of SUNY Binghamton and Northwestern University, he has authored or co-authored over 150 papers and authored or edited 26 books, and frequently is quoted in the media on a wide range of topics affecting higher education.

At the Club's annual meeting a new slate of officers and directors for the 2014-2015 calendar will be considered for installation.

For event questions, please contact Matthew Nagowski at nagowski@cornell.edu.
