Edith,
You are invited to my reception at City Lights on Friday, December 4th at 7:00. The
occasion is the release of my new DVD of the play, "Nance Dude." However, I am
hoping that the reception may also be the opportunity to discuss regional folklore/history
and folk drama. Please come.
Gary Carden
