Hello All,

    Getting together sounds great! I worked in the booth at AASL in Birmingham
and had a wonderful time meeting people.
     Linda Resch (a colleague) and I will be doing a session with author D.B.
Johnson and his book Henry Hikes to Fitchburg on Friday from 1:30 - 2:30. He
will be signing books as well. Primary sources (American Memory, especially
Nineteenth Century Periodicals, Concord Free Public Library, and Thoreau
Institute) will be highlighted in the Web-based activities.
