Sorry to send this as an "answer" but I'm at work and therefore blocked from the listerve. argh.
Anyway, I'm going to try to make the meeting this evening but I have a birthday drinks thing after work for a dear friend and it might be obnoxious for me to show up at the meeting half in the bag, so if that's the case I won't come.
There was a lot of interest on the Pratt listserve about RadRef, however a lot of grumbling that the meeting is on a Friday night (I guess lots of bartenders and waitresses aspiring to be librarians!) because they couldn't attend.
I also want to mention that Pratt is having a "librarian swarm" on Saturday October 3rd for Banned Books Week and the organizers wanted me to see if Radical Reference was interested in attending/swarming/etc.
The organizer is Jessica Speer (speer.jessica-atsign-gmail-dot-com)
Here's the date/time info:
Saturday, October 3 between 1 & 3 pm. @ Union Square.
I'm envisioning librarians showing up with a couple of their favorite
challenged books and whatever freedom-to-read paraphernalia they can get
their hands on. We're working on getting pins made for the swarmers and/or
to pass out, if we can swing the $, either via SILSSA's budget or a
last-minute bake sale. We have a page of info/resources on the Google Groups
page, so people can prepare some talking points (most challenged books last
And the Google Group http://groups.google.com/group/silssa-banned-books-week?hl=en
If anyone is interested, you can contact Jessica directly.
Maybe I'll see later.
