We will introduce our new book, Scholars without Walls: The History of the Minnesota Independent Scholars' Forum. This book, due out in October 2018, tells how a group of unemployed academics became a current-day organization with monthly meetings, study groups, a regular newsletter, and fiscal agency assistance. In addition to a history of the organization, this new book includes examples of writing by independent scholars—on subjects from health insurance to history.
