Meet the American Space Library: A Community Event

The first American Space Library Workshop turned out to be a success.

The group was very attentive and a lot of information was gathered on most diverse subjects in the end:
E.g., the Icelandic-US relations, literature by and about authors like John Steinbeck or Ernest Hemingway, or the newest edition of Vanity Fair. Participants also learned how fast-paced and dynamic internet sources are these days, as they discussed the Encyclopedia Britannica, which already offers an article on the Maidan protest movement.
