Excited for the event tonight! If you are coming to Omni for the first time, you can access the building easily by Bart from Macarthur. There is also street parking in the neighborhood. We will have light refreshments and welcome anything you want to bring to share!

We are so excited to see everyone this Tuesday, October 6 for Marjorie's talk. Please note that this time around, Translating the Archive will be held upstairs in the Disco Room at the Omni, which unfortunately is not wheelchair accessible.

The Bread and Puppet Theater will be downstairs in the ballroom, so we are moving upstairs to the Disco Room in order to have the best audio. If you are interested in attending and are unable to use the stairs, please contact me!
