Summer is finally here!!! To set this off, we've decided to start at the bottom with mushrooms. New York City is home to many edible/non-edible varieties of mushroom and summer time is one of the best time to go foraging. Begun some 50 years ago by, the artist/composer, John Cage the NYMS (New York Mycological Society) has shared the love of mushroom hunting and mushroom eating (mycophagy) with the city of New York. Our plan is two-fold; go foraging with the NYMS and discuss a reading from Anna Tsing's new book The Mushroom at the End of the World. Please join us Monday, June 20th at 7pm for a mushroom potluck and discussion of Anna Tsing's The Mushroom at the End of the World at Essye's apartment with a presentation by Artists, Ben Kinsley and Jessica Langley and Sunday, June 26th at 10 am for a romp through Central Park West with the NYMS.
