On behalf of the Talarico family, it is with great sorrow that we inform the CSI community of the passing of former Chair of the Department of World Languages and Literatures and Professor Emeritus Kathryn Talarico on Saturday, Aug. 16.

The family asks that instead of flowers, donations be made to the Kathryn Talarico French Studies Award, a scholarship fund to assist students of French at the College of Staten Island.  Please go online  and click “make your gift on line now.”

Thank you very much.
