Archive - What We've Presented


We are in the process of retiring some of the posts out of our blog archive.  It seems that after 6 years links go away, photos disappear and general mayhem can ensue. So, we are converting as much of that information as possible, what was read and when, to this page.  

There have been dozens of staff over 6+ years, and some titles have been read multiple times by different people.  So this list is not the total definitive list.  There probably isn’t a bullet-proof method possible to build one.  But it does give you an idea of the breadth of literature that we have presented.
***

We will be backing up to this list and deleting posts through the beginning of 2012, ultimately.  Check back every now and again as this list expands.  Currently this list goes through February 2010.
