Andrew here again.
It is with great regret that are going to have to cancel Billie's talk this Friday in Melbourne. One of our beloved dogs had unexpected major surgery yesterday, and Billie feels strongly she needs to stay by her side. Billie will reschedule once things have resolved, but at the moment, we are going to have to cancel Friday. Right now we are making every day a jewel.
Billie was really looking forward to seeing everyone, sharing her wisdom, meeting Melbourne folks, catching up with students and friends, and she had a lovely evening planned.
We know that all of you understand what is going on and support our decision, but even so, we apologise for the inconvenience and hope that Melbourne folks will all come and meet Billie when she can reschedule this event.
