Hello All,

We would like to remind you that the Reveal Digital Funders Virtual Round Table is just one week away!

The virtual round table will be on Tuesday, January 23rd from 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EST. Funders and non-funders alike are welcome to attend – this is an opportunity to learn more about Reveal Digital’s open access collections and their progress.

Instead of holding this meeting in person at ALA Midwinter this year, LYRASIS will be hosting a virtual round table on behalf of Reveal Digital. Since travel will not be required, Reveal has been able to create an agenda with two highly engaging guest speakers:

Linda Gordon is the author of a newly published book, The Second Coming of the KKK.  Dr. Gordon's book was reviewed by the New York Times<https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/08/books/review/podcast-second-coming-of-kkk-linda-gordon.html> and she has been featured on numerous television and radio programs. Dr. Gordon will talk to us about the 1920s KKK, its parallels to the political scene today and about her research process underlying the book.

Thorne Dreyer is an alternative journalist who was one of the founders of the iconic 1960s and 70s alternative press publication, The Rag. Mr Dreyer was an integral part of the left's political movement, particularly in Austin, Texas. He continues his work today via his Rag Blog<http://www.theragblog.com/> and the Rag Blog radio show. Mr. Dreyer will talk about the value of the underground press to political and social movements in the 1960s and 70s and the contributions of The Rag in particular.

After the speakers wrap up, Reveal will provide a progress report on the Independent Voices and Ku Klux Klan newspaper projects along with a brief update on what's happening at Reveal Digital. There will be plenty of time for questions and comments.
