The first book of 2014 is "A Web for Everyone: Designing Accessible User Experiences" by Sarah Horton & Whitney Quesenbery.
This book choice is inspired by an upcoming TriUXPA workshop -- Using Personas and Storytelling Effectively -- featuring co-author Whitney Quesenbery! In fact, she'll make a guest appearance during the Raleigh gathering, in case you're interested in attending.
The Durham gathering will take place Monday, Feb. 24, 2014 at 6:30 p.m.
Snacks and drinks will be provided.

PARKING & DIRECTIONS:
Parking is free on Duke's campus after 5pm. The closest lot is across Science Drive and slightly south of the Science Drive entrance. The elevator is right inside the entrance to the left. You'll need to be escorted up because the floor locks after 5. If no-one is waiting for you or you arrive a little late, phone numbers will be posted for you to call/text and we'll come get you.
It is very easy to access the elevator and room if you enter in the correct entrance. However, the building is very large, and if you enter from another door it would be easy to get lost. Please be sure to enter the building from the entrance that faces Science Drive.
