On November 9th the NJ Center for the Book completed the last chapter of its e-serial, The New Jersey Trackers and the Imagination Tree, by symbolically planting the seeds of the Imagination Tree at Rutgers Honors College in New Brunswick. The event commemorates both the completion of the e-serial and the 250th anniversary of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, host institution for the NJ Center for the Book. For those of you who may not have read the e-serial, the final chapter concludes with the planting of the seeds so that imagination and creativity will continue to grow in our state.
