Come celebrate with us on April 19th at 6 pm, at the RISD Nature Lab (13 Waterman St, Providence, RI). You'll need to call the number on the door to be let into the building. We hope to see you!
My friends worry and they tell me
About it. They talk of the world
ending, of darkness and disaster.
I always listen gently, and then
say: No, it's not going to end. This
is only the beginning, as this book
is only a beginning.
