Molly Peacock 10/4/08 & Robert Dunn memorial 10/11/08

As most of you already know, Robert Dunn passed away this past Thursday evening of a massive heart attack. There will be no public services, but there will be a memorial for him at The Vault on Oct. 11th at 9:00 PM. I will use the open reading time at this (Molly Peacock’s) reading to have a small memorial to Robert for those of you who cannot get to Queens on the 11th. If there is time remaining after the memorial we will continue with our regular open reading.
