  1. Hi Heidi. The McCloud talk at Carnegie Mellon is actually on Thursday the 7th at 4:30. I’ll be there and I’m quite excited for it.

  2. Thanks so much for mentioning us, but I wanted to point out that the event won’t be taking place in the Garden Cafeteria, but rather at the grand old Eldridge Street Synagogue. The Garden Cafeteria is the name of our literary series, which honors a now defunct cafeteria next to the Forward building on the Lower East Side where famous Yiddish writers would write and kibitz over coffee.

    Also, the admission cost is incorrect on the website listing – it’s actually $8 adults, $5 students/seniors. :-)

    Anyway, thanks again and hope to see you there!
