Where:  Friends of Bookshare Community Room at:

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..
Note:  Archives of events are available for download at
