The next Friends of the Alphabet general meeting is coming up!
Please join us on
Monday, May 8, 2023 at 7:00 p.m.
We are honored to have a special guest, Douglas Myers. Douglas is the son-in-law of Founding FOTA member John Stuart McKenzie, who sadly passed away in 2005. John McKenzie was influential in many ways to our community, and his wisdom and wit are remembered fondly. Recently his family donated many framed artworks from his collection (created by him and by others). Thus it is an apt time for this presentation.
Douglas is a member of Toastmasters International and is an enthusiastic speaker and storyteller, so this promises to be an engaging evening. As a non-calligrapher who spent a great deal of time with John Stuart McKenzie he absorbed much and offers a unique perspective.
We will begin at 7:00 pm with a short business meeting. Note that the presentation will possibly begin before 7:30 pm. Afterwards we would like to invite members to linger for some casual social time, and we plan to wind up the evening around 9:00 pm.
Regular Fota meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Presentation will possibly begin before 7:30 PM
Will be via zoom
and available for 30 days
An amazing conference!
We hope you enjoyed it!

Our membership contains professional calligraphers, talented practitioners, and rank beginners. Some have found calligraphy a creative outlet; others have discovered an enthralling hobby. Some have found a place to belong; others, a place for escape. Many of us are artists in other disciplines - printers, bookbinders, graphic artists, designers, writers, and students - and some are simply observers who like what they see.Join us
