Yes booklets work well at events and as reminders as well as reaching 
out to people who make physical work.

I have old a-n and Wikimedia booklets in my studio...

I'd recommend that.

Do consider using CC0 rather than Public Domain. CC0 is legally sounder, 
and has the effects that people intend with public domain dedications.

The FAL is now a very sound licence, but it's not used as much as BY-SA 
and is incompatible with that larger pool of work. Given this, I 
wouldn't currently recommend promoting it.
