Past Participants

March 28, 2017 § Leave a comment

This space has been dormant for a bit, as a quick perusal through its contents will show, and since the last update, WordPress has changed its interface. I was fixing some of the links to a list of past participants running along the right side of this page, when I clicked wrong (I don’t know where or how) and the list disappeared. So I’m putting that list here for safekeeping, until I can get around to reinstating it as a feature of the blog. In the meantime, it’s lovely to recall how each of the following parties, over the course of a few years, came to share their work with us–usually at the little house, since destroyed, on 16th St.
