No need to RSVP, just stop by and help out.  If you can’t make it but want to be included, please send me your image/article/business card/project/interview with your caption info to by this Friday, September 17.This is a group project, benefiting the whole collective, so please think of how you can help put the books together.  If you can’t make it this weekend try to help out in the coming weeks before the Swap (October 3rd).
