Thanks to all of you who have joined our AMSE Online Book Club! We have had so much fun already and we’ve learned a lot from some great books, and we hope you have too. AMSE’s Executive Director, Alan Lowe, wanted to let you know we are changing the Club just a bit – from now on, all Book Club posts and discussions will take place on our general AMSE Facebook page, not in a separate Facebook Club. We thought this might open the Club to more of our Facebook followers. We will continue to make regular posts and encourage you to join the discussion. Be on the lookout for our Executive Director’s questions to you – sometimes they come with rewards for our readers! Thanks for taking part, and we hope to see you soon and often at AMSE and the K-25 History Center.
