first Monday of each month on the New Hampshire Institute Campus 
starting at 7 PM.

Library/Learning Center/Bookstore, http://www.nhti.net/nhtimap.pdf , 
marked as "I" on that map. The main meeting starts at 7 PM, with Ed 
Lawson presenting Scribus, an open desktop publishing system. Open to 
the public. Free admission. Tell your friends.

Scribus is available from http://www.scribus.org.uk and is not just 
another pretentious word processor, but an entire pre-press system for 
producing high-quality documents suitable for publication. It will 
generate PDF. It has a new "Scriptor" API for scripting in Python. 
Imports and exports SVG. Bells! Whistles! It runs natively under Linux 
and under X11 on Mac OS X and CygWin on Windows. Scribus is distributed 
under the GPL.
