This year's topic:

According to the ALA Archives, Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015) attended ALA in 1976 to sign copies of his book  I am Not Spock (1975); later in 1995 he would publish another autobiography: I am Spock.   Beyond his fame from Star Trek, he was a multifaceted artist who published poetry, photography, wrote screenplays and even recorded records and audio books.  In this Pop Culture Discussion Group we will discuss all the creative endeavors of this beloved artist and his impact.  Join us for a conversation about Nimoy, Star Trek, and fandom.  This Discussion Group is open to anyone interested and able to attend.  Any questions or ideas?  Contact me at robb.41@osu.edu
