A "Friend of the RC" worked long and hard on his new book, published in Dec., and wanted me to share it with all of you. Apparently there are 13 "used" copies selling for as little as $13 that the author guarantees are probably new; sent out prior to publication as a marketing perk.
Although we did not have a Rehearsal Club table, we DID have a presence. Carolyn Kirsch & Denise Pence
volunteered at the Dancers Over 40 booth (& Denise pitched the RC Documentary right alongside mountains of Playbills). Whatever works!
