Luncheon Series

Each of these brown-bag luncheons will be in the Media Center at the Robert M. Strozier Library, on the FSU campus. Feel free to bring a sandwich, yogurt, or whatever; we will furnish ice, sodas, and of course cookies. Speaking of dessert, remember that Q&A will follow each of these informal presentations.
