Low Maintenance Book Club reads selections from "Broad Band"
This spring, the Low Maintenance Book Club will be reading selections from Claire L. Evan's Broad Band: The Untold Story of the Women Who Made the Internet over three meetings. Spanning decades, this book profiles key figures who made advances in programming and technology that led to the online world of today.
Each meeting will feature stand-alone selections from this book, so it is not necessary to attend all meetings to follow along. At this meeting, we'll discuss the Introduction (pages 1-5 in the hard copy) and Chapter 2: "Amazing Grace" (pages 27-53).
Spring 2020 meeting schedule:
- January 22, 5:30pm: Introduction (p. 1-5) and Chapter 2: "Amazing Grace" (p. 27-53)
- March 4, 5:30pm : Chapter 6: "The Longest Cave" (p. 83-94) and Chapter 10: "Hypertext" (p.153-174).
- April 7, 5:30pm: Chapter 13: "The Girl Gamers" (p. 222-236) and the Epilogue (p. 237-242).
