Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
Do you have a stack of books that is accumulating in your office that you just don't seem to get the time to read? Do you bring them with you everywhere and never seem to crack one open? Would you like to set some time aside to get at those books? Take a post-Advent break and join us for a day or the whole week!
