R-Spec meets eleven months of the year on the first Tuesday of the month. (We don't hold a regular meeting in December.) Normally we meet at the Barnes & Noble in Pittsford (3349 Monroe Avenue, Rochester, NY 14618), from 7 to 9 p.m. For 'Reading' meetings, please show up early so we can put your name on the list to read. This calendar is also available as a PDF. Please contact us if you have any questions.
We're extremely pleased to announce that 2034: Writing Rochester's Futures has been delivered by our printer and is available for immediate purchase. And we're having a book pick-up party this Sunday (1/31/2010) at 4pm, at the home of Janice Carello & Eric Scoles. Anyone who sees this and would like to come is welcome to do so -- we will have plenty of books for sale and can even facilitate credit/debit card purchases via the web, if you so desire.
Our R-SPEC meeting on October 6 at the Pittsford Barnes and Noble went very well. Our guest speaker, Alex White, gave a wonderful talk on the realities of combat, class, and culture in the Middle Ages in Europe.
