Join Jennie Hinchcliff and members of the SF Correspondence Co-op to celebrate Dia de los Muertos. Attendees will create artful postcards and are encouraged to write, reflect, and correspond with loved ones -- creating short poems known as calaveras -- in the spirit of the holiday.  Artwork created during the afternoon can be kept as a keepsake or mailed to friends.  All postcards completed and mailed from the event will receive a special commemorative hand cancellation.
