Free events of the Week with a few special events for children

The holiday season with fewer talks and book reviews seems a good chance to make changes in the weekly listing.  Today's listing starts the new scheduling made necessary by coordination with other lists of events.  By being issued on Friday morning each week, I hope you can find events to attend for the weekend and the week ahead.  Please excuse errors in my listing as I attempt to adjust to the Dragon dictation system.  I hope you will also have time to check my other blog at
