So, was there some problem securing a spot somewhere actually in... Gowanus? Could be I know but still, this seems odd, although I have nothing but love for Mutha Belarus: is that perhaps her knee on the Carroll St bridge?

Re: index cards, I wonder if they will be 5 x 7 or 6 x 8, lined or unlined, and if I will have to write in red or black ink? If I ask a question in Belarus, will anybody there be able to answer?

Oh Joan Millman, wherefore art thou!

Love,

The Mad Belarusian

Well, if you MUST know rumour has it that the cards are going to be 3 x 4..and yes it is a bit strange that the meeting is not being held IN Gowanus but that may be to make the sizeable Belarusian Gowanian community feel more at home....who knows?
