Capitol Choices Agenda for Friday, March 24



Agenda will close March 9

REMINDER : We are now closing the agenda TWO WEEKS before the meeting. Therefore, March 9 at midnight is the last day to nominate titles for the March 24 meeting. At the March meeting, all titles will be on the agenda that were published in January and February.


Thursday, March 9, 7:00 p.m. Join the conversation with historian Leonard Marcus and Golden Books editor Diane Muldrow as they provide insights into the Golden Books publishing phenomenon, past and present. The program will take place at the Mount Pleasant Library, 3160 16th St., NW, Washington, DC. The library is a few blocks from the Columbia Heights metro stop on the yellow and green lines. The setting includes murals and other artwork by Golden Books' artist, Aurelius Battaglia. Books will be available for purchase and signing. Call 202.771.3125 for more information.


After an idea from the membership, the Board has decided to shift the deadline for meeting nominations back one week. Instead of closing on the Thursday before the meeting, they will close TWO Thursdays before the meeting. The agenda will be posted TWO WEEKS before the meeting dates, giving members more time to read the nominated titles that are up for discussion. Of course, nominations can be made at any time, but they will roll over to the next meeting. The nomination deadline for our first meeting is now March 9.
