Thursday, November 11, 2010
Noon - 1:30 p.m.
Williman Room, Benson Memorial Center

Please join the University Library, Bon Appétit and Athletics & Recreation for the Fall 2010 Literary Cuisine.

This Literary Cuisine examines collegiate sports and the economic value of highly skilled athletes, but more importantly, how education and a change in environment can dramatically change someone's life. The discussion will use The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game by Michael Lewis as its base.

Our guest speakers for this event are both from Athletics & Recreation:

  • Michelle Schmitt, Director of Media Relations
  • Jeff Mitchell, Assistant Athletic Director, Compliance & Student Services,

Bon Appétit will be serving a special "tailgating" theme meal for the occasion. The cost is $10. Please join us on November 11, 2010 for a delicious tailgating lunch and an opportunity to win a Blind Side themed memento or two.

We regret that it is not possible to accept online reservations at this time. To register for this event, please contact Terry Hingston, University Librarian's Office, (, 408-554-6830) by Monday, November 8, 2010. Payment can be made by ACCESS Card flex account, cash, or check.
