Schedule Update

We've adjusted the dates of the first LIVEbrary program, Media Awareness: SEE the Media, BE the Media. We're starting two weeks later now, on October 15 instead of October 1.

Moving the start of the program back helps us avoid going up against Canadian Thanksgiving (Monday, October 8) and U.S. Thanksgiving (Thursday, November 22) -- two heavyweight holidays.

We're glad we'll be able to wrap up the first season before everyone gets thinking about the holidays. You'll be better prepared to deal with the advertising hustle after going through Media Awareness training with these five authors.
