Come help us celebrate the launch of Dymaxicon –- a new kind of publishing house brought to you by Agile Learning Labs.
Saturday, August 20, 2011, 6 to 8 pm
Internos Wine Bar
3240 Geary Street, San Francisco
Raise a glass and toast a new, agile way of producing books, videos and media. Join Chris Sims and Hillary Louise Johnson to celebrate the success of their book, The Elements of Scrum. Come meet some of our dynamic authors whose books and videos have recently gone to press:
- Nancy Rommelmann, author of The Bad Mother, is a journalist whose long form narrative non-fiction has won her numerous awards. The Bad Mother is Nancy’s first foray into the world of fiction – but it certainly won’t be her last.
- Lili Ristagno author of Short Fuse: A graphic novel. By day, Lili is a city librarian in Portland, Oregon. By night, she fights crime on the literary page. She spent months in exile in Nebraska researching, writing and drawing this unusual true crime graphic novel.
- Chris Sims & Hillary Louise Johnson, co-authors of The Elements of Scrum. Find out why the elephant dances on the beach ball and how the agile movement is getting the lead out of business teams from Silicon Valley to India. Chris is the founder of Agile Learning Labs, and Hillary is a novelist, essayist and business journalist.
The wine will be flowing and the canapés will be on the house. You’ll also get a chance to sample Dymaxicon’s diverse offerings: we’ll be showing highlights from Jeff McKenna’s video series, Conscious Software Development, and Nancy Rommelmann will be reading from The Bad Mother. You can buy a copy of The Elements of Scrum, or bring yours in to have it signed by the authors. We’ll also be giving away bound galleys for upcoming titles, so you might just snag a collector’s item.
