Elizabeth Anne VanderPutten - My NSF Book Club, January 28, 2007

The NSF Book Club

I have been a member of the NSF Book Club for years. While I think we had a male member at one time, none of us could remember who he was when the subject arose last evening. Basically we are a group of women Ph.D.s who are involved in science and who enjoy reading. We meet to discuss book, authors, and the current state of affairs of the world, science and the National Science Foundation. Last night, our subject was Mary Shelly's Frankenstein

 On January 28, 2008, we met at my condo in downtown D.C. From left to right are Carole Lacampagne (National Research Council), Susan Ganter (Clemson University), Terry Wooden (NSF, Undergraduate Education), Tina Straley (Mathematics Association of America), Florence Fasanelli (American Association for the Advancement of Science) and myself from (National Science Foundation). The youngest member in the center is Susan's daughter Jamie. (As is normal, several of our members were out of town at meetings and were unable to make it last evening.)
