This week we celebrate the release of History Senior Manager Wayne Dowdy’s latest book.  We will, of course, have a copy here in the Memphis Room, but the book will also be available from local booksellers.  Don’t forget to take a look at other books from current and former staff members – They make wonderful Christmas presents!
