For the Junior League of Ann Arbor, the holiday season means it's time for their annual poinsettia fundraiser! Poinsettias are available for purchase by Ann Arbor residents and businesses in four different sizes, and can also be donated to local Ann Arbor organizations such as Ann Arbor Meals on Wheels, Arbor Hospice, and UofM Hospital. Don't delay - sales end November 16th. All proceeds from sales of the poinsettias will be directed towards JLAA's programs helping women and children in Washtenaw County.

The Association of University Presses has chosen "#TurnItUP" as the theme of their 2018 University Press Week, which runs from November 12-17. The seventh annual UP Week, this is a time to celebrate and promote mission-driven university presses. The #TurnItUP theme emphasizes the critical role of university presses in providing a voice for authors, ideas, and communities beyond the scope of mainstream publishing. The Association of Univeristy Presses is a global membership organization for not-for-profit scholarly publishers, with offices in New York and Washington, DC.

Are you concerned about how climate change and urban development impact local ecosystems?
