. . . . Tomorrow! Sunday, Oct. 31! It begins at 3:30 pm! (Eastern Daylight Time)
We'd love to have you with us. To participate, you need to have the Zoom link, which you get from the [seminar] mailing list (because [nedslist] is too big to send Zoom links to). If you're not already on that list, write me and I'll make sure you get the link.
