Bluestockings is at 172 Allen Street, a block and change south of 
Houston, telephone 212-777-6028, and the event will be from 7-9pm,

That's pretty much it for now. Thanks to everyone who came out to the 
bookfairs in October and said hello; it was inspiring to meet so many 
people doing small press book and activist work on such diverse 
fronts. Keep it moving!
