I just sent in my RSVP: yes, I will attend.
I live near the Jefferson Market Library and I love it there. It is in an amazing building. I think the basement was once a prison and behind the library was the Women's House of Detention. (I miss Sutter's) When I taught at PS 41, we would go there for cofffee and cake after school.

I am going to invite the women of my Peer Group from The Transition Network to join me. (
"Smart Women Don't Retire" is a book we all love.

I am grabbing every get out of jail free card in my Monopoly box. Preparing Mark's favorite dinner for the next 17 nights.) I'd love to attend!

I'd love to go, it sounds interesting, but I have rehearsal that night. I'm interested in panels such as these in the future, though, as they seem to be more popular than I believed. I hope that everyone attending has fun! :)
