Due to a misunderstanding with the People’s Forum, we will hold Stanley’s class (Noon until 2 p.m.) at his residence, 244 Madison Avenue, #10‑A (37th street).
The Freud class will be held at 2:30 p.m. and the Age of Anxiety at 4:30 p.m. at BMCC, 199 Chambers St. in Room N‑651. If you have any problems getting in, say a “meeting with Dr. Bratsis.”
Apologies for this change and for this displacement.
