 To book please respond to with the name and email address of the person to attend, the community archive group they belong to, and the date of the session you would like to book. I will confirm the booking via email.

 If you are unable to make the dates or get a place, we will be recording our presentations and making them available as videos for you to watch at your convenience and share with your group.
