The next three months will be well-traveled ones for us here at THE MINDSET LIST®.
*On October 24 we’ll be speaking to the Goddard Space Lab (NASA) in Maryland;
*on October 25-26 to the Chicago Historical Society;
*on November 3 to the JumpStart Coalition’s Annual Convention on Financial Literacy in Chicago, and
*on January 18, 2013 to the NCAA Annual Convention in Dallas
What, you might ask, could such a diverse series of groups want to do with us? The answer resides in a simple fact: the generation gap touches nearly everything, from the workplace at NASA to the way museums present history; from the way today’s teens understand financial literacy to how this generation has grown up with an entirely different set of ideas about intercollegiate sports. In addition, people are discovering that our book The Mindset Lists of American History (Wiley, 2011) provides a dandy way to teach the history of almost everything, for history is a matter of how what seemes “normal” to one generation appears astonishing to another.
Oh, and on the evening of October 23 we’ll be doing a book signing at Barnes and Noble near Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. If you can. stop by; we’d love to meet you! –Tom
