Schedule for 2022
Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the safety of in-person gatherings, we have decided to hold our quarterly meetings and special presentation meetings for 2022 online via Zoom. Invitations to the Zoom meetings will be sent to members by email. Please visit the "Recordings" page for recordings of past readings and events. Unless otherwise noted, all of our meetings begin at 1 p.m. Pacific Time. We hope to add some in-person social gatherings to be held outdoors starting in the spring.
