Dear Glenn,

We hope everyone enjoyed last night's lecture with Patrick Hunt.  

We are so excited to launch the first AIA Book Club!  There are so many books about archaeology to share and we look forward to having wonderful conversations about a wide variety of topics. 

The book club is open to all. You do NOT need to be a member of AIA to participate, in fact, we hope you invite friends!

We hope you will be able to join us as we delve into the past...and bring some friends!
