Plan extra time for getting around downtown. Parking is available in the building for moderate price. Elevator takes you right inside, so you don't have to go outside in the rain.

My husband has loved reading his books and enjoyed the presentation. Many thanks from me for the captioning, as I had trouble understanding him at times.
