Summer is well under way here in Vermont, and school’s out. But, I was the word nerd in school, who at the end of each school year, received my Summer Reading List with glee, not gloom.
Annually, I challenged myself – how many books from this list could I read before school started again? Some years, it was too easy. Other years, the books were heavier – literally, and philosophically, er figuratively.
It wasn’t until I got older, I turned to more fun pursuits – Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum, Diana Gabaldon, George R.R. Martin, J.K. Rowling, and the list goes on for miles. But, between the two, I visited the likes of Philip Roth, Salman Rushdie, and Paulo Coehlo…again, to name a few.
As I finished Brigette Hyacinth’s The Future of Leadership: Rise of Artificial Intelligence, Automation, and Robotics, I received (same day, mind you) Shane Snow’s Dream Teams.
Where did all that reading lead you may be asking yourself? It lead to the article below, and some fascinating insights I learned, in researching it. The STEM race will not leave the “A” in STEAM behind. In fact, it seems, the “A” in STEAM will be the heART of STEM.

Just for Fun:
I have found my oasis in a small town in upstate New York.
Population: less than 500. Independent bookstores: 5.
Can you guess? If you know the place I mean, leave a comment below.
If you spend all your money on books, and if there’s any left over you’ll buy food and clothes – tune in next Friday to learn more.

See you on the inside!
