Bring your cards, bring your stamps, and let’s get those holiday cards in the mail! We’ll be gathering in the Jaffe Book Arts Gallery for a special in-house Real Mail Fridays session devoted just to midwinter holiday cards on Tuesday December 12. Bring your Christmas cards, bring your Chanukah cards (Chanukah continues to December 15!), bring your Kwanzaa cards and Yule cards and New Year cards, and don’t forget your postage stamps, too. We’ll supply the gathering spot and simple art supplies and a Very Jaffe Soundtrack of delightfully unusual music for the season. You may also bring coffee and tea and water (but no other food and no sodas, please)*. Donations in support of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts are welcome but not expected.
Come when you can and leave when you must, and expect a delightful afternoon… the kind where you’re dreaming of a white Christmas with every Christmas card you write. And don’t forget: just like being in a snowy forest, it can get pretty cold in the Jaffe Book Arts Gallery over the course of a few hours; wise holiday card writers will be dressed in layers for this social.
The Jaffe Center for Book Arts is located on the third floor east of Florida Atlantic University’s Wimberly Library. FAU staff and students will need their Owl Card to enter the library. Visitors will need to wave at the front desk librarians and ask them to let you in.
