The freeware program CocoaBooklet will create 11 x 17 documents from your letter-size pdfs and will even get the pages in the right order. So you won't need to change anything in the way you produce your newsletter in Pages. Just output the letter-size pdfs as normal and let CocoaBooklet do the rest.
I've used this program for several years and have never had a problem with it.
Hope this helps.

As Mark said, use Cocoa Booklet. Here are some instructions I wrote for someone else a while back.
Create your Pages document in Letter-size as normal & then Export the Pages document to a PDF. Launch Cocoa Booklet & open its Preferences. In Paper Size set the Paper Format to "Personnalisé" with the Width 17 x Height 11 (measuring unit is set in a drop-down menu at the lower left of this preference window. Leave the default margins. In the Destination preference, select Yes for Add a suffix? to avoid overwriting your original PDF & click Save. The choices in the Options preferences are all left unchecked for your tabloid-size document. Then drag the PDF to the icon of Cocoa Booklet to will create a new PDF in booklet form.24" 2.4 Core 2 Duo iMac; G5 2.3GHz; 15" MacBook Pro 2.0; 30GB 5G iPod, Mac OS X (10.5.2), TV, iPhone, 2GB iPod nano, G3/600 iBook, G4/700 iMac, PB 1400, Apple IIgs
