Dear PF pals,
Between the holidays, snow, and newly arrived babies, it has been quite awhile since we had a meeting! Nonetheless, much has been going on behind-the-scenes... see at bottom list of benefits and other exciting events coming up.
As such, after consulting with a number of key members of the group, we have decided to do the meeting two weeks from tomorrow, Saturday, March 20, 5:30pm as a potluck (with possible guest appearance by the mighty Soren Huseyin himself! See attached photos... :-)
Also, we are now listed on the sign outside St. Stephen's -- hooray! (again, see attached)
As you can see there is a lot to discuss, including update on More Than A Witness, PF documentary... see yet another bit attached, our page from PM Press's new catalog.
Please get this on your calendars right away, and do your best to be there... we need a lot of folks working together to pull off all these events and more. Spread the word... can't wait to see you all on the 20th!
PS BREAKING NEWS: We have been informed that Gabriel Kuhn, who was going to appear at our May 8th book event has been denied entry to this country... apparently has been placed on some "suspected terrorist/no fly" list! Needless to say, this is pretty upsettingly ridiculous. Please see more info on Gabriel's situation at http://www.pmpress.org/content/article.php/20100129101337126 Despite the terrible news, we are going to go ahead with the event, bringing Gabriel to St. Stephen's via computer video link-up. Stay tuned for more updates soon...
