Dennis Meredith came to town to talk about Explaining Research so I reported from the event. I also reported on the presentation about Serious Gaming at Sigma Xi.

Two of my friends and neighbors published books in May so I announced the sites and times for local readings - 'On The Grid' by Scott Huler and 'Bonobo Handshake' by Vanessa Woods. I reported from the 'On The Grid' reading here. Both book reviews are coming soon.
