News Flash!!! In the ensuing time since the day of the luncheon, October 11th, was announced and registration forms were posted, we have found out that the Birmingham Public Library is going to bring Miss Iwate (the Birmingham Japanese Friendship Doll) to our gathering. Miss Iwate is one of the Friendship Dolls featured in an article by Allen Pate in our Doll News magazine. Miss Iwate is terribly fragile and will have to remain in her box, but she will be with us. Accompanying Miss Iwate will be Mary Beth Newbill of the Birmingham Public Library who will bring us up to date on the plans for Miss Iwate's restoration and preservation. This, in addition to a great program about the magical world of fairies by our guest speaker Sandra Gillis, will make for an interesting luncheon.
