MARCH 20th MEETING - BOOK SWAP

Swing by Half Price Books, pick up a cheap paperback copy of one (or two) of your favorite books, and bring it (them) to our next meeting on Thursday, March 20th at 2:15pm in B275 for an old-fashioned book swap. Fingers crossed, Professor Schulze will figure out how to get a couple of pizzas to the meeting as well. See you!
