Thank you for all your efforts. We'll look forward to having you back on the boards.
Welcome. Please do let us know a little about yourself.

Saw this announcement for the January read for the History Book Club:
The History Book Club discusses Boom! Voices of the Sixties by Tom Brokaw
Remarkable in its insights, profoundly moving, wonderfully written and reported, this revealing portrait of a generation and of an era, and of the impact of the 1960s on our lives today, lets us be present at this reunion ourselves, and join in these frank conversations about America then, now, and tomorrow.

As noted above, I'll be joining you as a moderator. I'm very excited about our discussions. As Jim noted, I'm a docent at the New-York Historical Society and I also teach at Temple University in Philadelphia. My primary interest areas (outside of Communications, which is the area of my teaching and research) is the history of New York City and its implications within American culture. Since joining the Society, however, I really have become interested in numerous aspects of history. The best part of looking at history is for me, by far, discussing its implications with other people. The thing that I often remind myself is that history itself, indeed the very word, is based on human narratives and communicative interactions. I look forward to those exchanges with all of you.
