I'm posting next month's meeting before this month's meeting has occurred because I'm moving the meetings next year to the second Thursday of the month, so these 2 meetings will be a bit closer together than usual.

For 2017, we are starting off the year with "UX Strategy" by Jaime Levy. Get 10% off when you buy the book from Ada's. Just tell them its for book club:

Also, Author Jaime Levy will be calling in to chat with us for part of the meeting, so bring in any questions to ask her!

Here's the description:
