This volume is fresh with insight into the human experience, and strives to create a dialogue around how we cultivate our world and how we define ourselves as humans.

The release party for this year's edition will be held on December 18th, at Java's Coffee Shop on RIT's main campus. A time for the event will be released soon on our Facebook page.
