  1. There seems to be an error in the RSVP link. It goes to a “page not found” page.

  2. Thx Larry for mentioning that; I made some changes and sent you an email directly. Did you get all the info?

    Please join us!

    When the link didn’t work, I sent the enclosed email to Jill Foster. I assume it’s okay to come?

    Hi Jill,

    I used to work at NPR before it moved to Mass. Ave. This will be my first time back!

    I could not figure out any other way to RSVP for the Media Makers event except to email you. I’m a “watch and learn” person rather than a contributor. I guess if it is full, you will write back and let me know?
