Dear All,

just a reminder that instead of our regular meeting slated for tomorrow, we will
have a field trip of sorts to the conference on the Concretistas organized by K.
David Jackson being held this weekend. The conference events begin the very time
we would otherwise meet. The schedule of events is below.

We will meet on Nov 17th to discuss the work of Fanny Howe.  A packet of her
poems is available in our mailslot at the Whitney Humanities Center.

See everyone tomorrow.
