Are you attending this workshop on January 13/14 and coming from out of town?
Check it out!
Let me know if you need a place to stay in New Haven (susansurface at gmail) and can't afford a hotel. I obviously can't promise to host everyone, but do have some room in my place & understand the expenses of conference-hopping and how that can be cost-prohibitive to folks who would otherwise benefit from the experience. If you are extra lucky, lentil/squash/apple stew and mashed potatoes & mushroom gravy may also be involved.
