So many plans..

Our very own OTR Field trip!

Friday, December 4, 2009
Time: 5:00pm - 7:00pm
The Morgan Library & Museum 225 Madison Avenue at 36th Street New York, NY 10016
Blake's engravings are on exhibition and it would be awesome to go and check them out if you haven't already. We were all kind of interested in this - so we thought we'd make it a group event.

If you want to see some of the things you'll encounter - as well as tidbits about Blake - go to the best archive EVER for Blake's work:

This is going to be an evening trip so we're still deciding where to have lunch and all of that fluff. We'll change the details as they roll in - feel free to contribute ideas!

The cost is $8 for admission but we're seeing if we can defray that somehow. This is advance notice- so put some quarters in a jar for now!

any questions: olivetreereview [at]
Feel free to invite any friends to come along- we'll meet at Thomas Hunter 212 and all go over together.

This is in place of normal Friday evening workshops/open-mic- so plan accordingly!

This week - Wednesday.
I want to have a delicious brunch and then go to the zoo and maybe write or sketch... but also:

@ poet's house - 10 River Terrace>>
