What we're about

Break Over: The UX Bookclub is back!

We discuss books on user experience design, interface design, interaction design, usability, and related topics. Everyone is welcome, from new and aspiring designers to experienced design leaders. Come with your thoughts and an open mind, ready to discuss with your fellow readers. Didn't get through the book? That's ok, but you will get the most out of the meeting if you read it. Disagreement is welcome, but respect for all participants is mandatory.

Support a local business and buy the book from Ada's Online Store! (https://www.adasbooks.com) Available for in-store pickup on Capitol Hill or direct to home shipping.
