Calendar

Leslie Goddard

Many groups are now meeting in-person (hooray). Many are still virtual (hooray as well). Just be sure, if an in-person event is listed here, check with the presenting organization to make sure it's still a go.


NOTE FOR AUDIENCE MEMBERS:  It's always a good idea to check with the organization directly if you are interested in attending.


Unfortunately, my calendar is now fully booked for November and December 2021 but there are plenty of openings in 2022. This calendar is updated approximately once a month. It may take up to 4 weeks for a booking to appear here.​
