10:00 am to noon

This month's speaker is

Liz Russell

President Plum Street Publishers, Inc.

Liz Smith Russell has merged her two passions—entrepreneurship and a love for reading—into a longtime career in book publishing. For thirty years, she held the title of Publisher at August House Publishers, an award-winning independent publisher based in Little Rock and Atlanta specializing in storytelling resources and multicultural titles for young readers.

Liz has the unusual academic combination of a B.A. in English (Rhodes College) and an M.B.A. (University of Arkansas at Little Rock), which mostly means she can wield a massive vocabulary and market data at the same time.

She has worked in the field of small business consulting and microfinance. She is certified in export management as a Certified Global Business Professional and serves as an adjunct Instructor of Management at UALR. She is active in first-amendment advocacy and serves on the board of the Arkansas Association of Instructional Media, an affiliate of the American Association of School Librarians.

Liz will be speaking on "Best in Show: How to Stand Out in a Crowded Arena"

This promises to be an interesting meeting so please don't miss it.



We meet in the basement of the Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. Above is a map showing the Baptist Medical Center (looking north, Kanis Road at the bottom and I-630 at the top).

Your best bet is to park in or near the parking deck (lower lefthand corner [A]) and enter the hospital at street level at the entrance immediately adjacent to the parking deck [B]. Take the stairs down to the basement and turn left. We meet next to the cafeteria.
