    The guys were really honest with us and very helpful. They had a stack of writing over 5 inches thick to take back to read. So cool!

      It is cold, but it's nice to get out and train the brain with stimulation from those willing to give back. Hope you can make it.

    If you want to bring more than one entry of your pages, it's okay, but it will cost you one holiday cookie.

    Just signed up. Hope some future sessions might be scheduled further West. Even Oak Park would be a help re: commuting.
