ISLAND WITHIN A CITY BOOK COMMITTEE
a. Authorship Agreement—
The committee reviewed the changes made to the authorship agreement. The majority of the committee members agreed that they should stick with the four payment installments and not tie the dates to the deliverables. Trustee Parent felt that the latter three payments should be tied to deliverables. Trustee Parent accepted the majority’s decision; however, he sees this as a flaw in the contract. Director Wittmann asked the committee if they think 200 pages in the book is ok. Dawn Parent recommends changing to word count instead of pages. She also suggested that they be clear that the word count is the actual text of the book. The 200 pages translated to word count is 55,000 words in length. They discussed the title of the book. The committee decided that ‘Island Within a City: Vol 2’ would serve as a preliminary title, but this can be changed upon mutual consent of both Parties. Director Wittmann will send a copy to Laura Enright and then schedule a committee meeting at a later date. 
 
b. Next Meeting Date—
The committee will meet after Laura Enright reviews the agreement.
