Have you ever read a book that you’ve thought, 'Hey, this relates to stage management, or company management, or production management.' I know I have said that dozens of times. Wouldn’t you love to discuss those books with fellow theatre and entertainment managers? Wouldn’t you also like to expand your reading list to include options outside of the box? If you said yes to any of these questions, then please join the USITT Management Commission's Book Club, meeting the third Monday of every month via Zoom.

Stage Managers, Production Managers, Company Managers, Technical Directors, you name it: no matter where you are in entertainment management, you are managing people and you probably want to freshen up your thinking. Our goal is to take a look at management through a fresh lens and expand our resources to include a wide range of voices.

October ... Lead from the Outside, by Stacey Abrams
