I will be in China on work-related business the week of Dec. 8-12.  In my absence, Nicole Saylor will serve as Acting Director of the American Folklife Center.  Please direct all queries to her.

I will have sporadic access to email (and please note 12 hour time difference).  I return on Monday, December 15.


Thanks, Betsy
