The Cardozo Women book club is a great way to reach out and reconnect with other alumnae in a relaxed convivial setting. Chaired by Ilene Fish ’94, the group meets in the spacious yet cozy Faculty Lounge on the fifth floor at the Law School. A light supper is provided

To participate in the group or to suggest a new title for the reading list, contact Sharon Ashley Lewis, Director of Alumni Affairs, at slewis1@yu.edu or by phone at 212.790.0298.
