Don't Miss This Event! History Club To Be Launched November 6, 2007 Leader: Brian Miller Email: brian-r-miller@xxxxxxxxx Date: Tuesday, November 6, 2007 Time: 6:00 p.m. Pacific, 7:00 p.m. Mountain, 8:00 p.m. Central and 9:00 p.m. Eastern Where: Friends of Bookshare Community Room at: http://conference321.com/masteradmin/room.asp?id=rs7867a2369e0e Do you love history? Do you lose sleep trying to avoid the trap of Santayana's axiom of those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it? Why not exercise those history demons by attending the Bookshare history book club? The history book club will read and discuss a wide range of monographs on American and World history. Each meeting will focus on a particular topic or seminal epoch, such as race, gender, class, or disability; or, the American Revolution, the progressive era, the civil rights movement, the 100 years war, and so on. You no longer need to keep secret your love of reading history. Set free your inner history geek and join the Bookshare.org history book club. About the Leader: Brian Miller, currently employed by the United States Department of Education, resides in Washington, DC. His love of history has spanned a lifetime as evidenced by his academic and employment achievements. Brian has a bachelor's in political science from San Diego State university, and a master's in social studies education from the University of Iowa, where he is also completing his doctorate in history. Additionally, he taught history and Spanish at the University of Iowa for six years, taught AP American government and social studies courses at the high school level, and political science at the college level. We are indeed fortunate to have Brian lead our Friends of Bookshare History Book Club. There are no membership requirements, no direct costs, no need to pre-register, and no passwords required. All you need is a PC running Windows 2000 or later, an Internet connection, a sound card, and speakers. (Mac and Linux access coming soon.) Since this is an audio chat, a microphone will be needed to allow you to interact audibly with the presenter and each other but text chat is also available. If you are a first-time user of the Accessible World online conferencing software, there is a small, safe software program that you need to download and then run. A link to the software is available on the entry screen of each room..
