We are old hands at registering and will be happy to instruct you on how it's done. Come through the Barnes & Noble entrance. Our table will be between the food court and the carousel (how jolly!). Let us know if you would like to join us during this national event. And if you can just come for an hour or two, let us know which time is be best for you. To kick-off the beginnings of our celebration of the 100th anniversary of woman suffrage (the 19th Amendment, ratified August 18, 1920), we're suggesting that you wear suffrage white to the event. But, really, the most important thing is to come as you are.
