  1. Where is the Sat. AM lecture? Is it at the Pollard Library in Lowell and do you mean Sat at 10AM? Your post just says tomorrow. Also, you spelled Puleo incorrectly.

  2. Now I realize it is at the Georgetown Peabody library. Sorry.

  3. Karen- No problem. I thank you for the spelling correction...and yes, it is at the Georgetown Peabody Library.
