What a great appointment... her work is creative, eclectic, subtle, interesting and deeply committed. (Another fruit of the intriguing 'Notre Dame - Anabaptist connection', too, in a way.)

The most fascinating list of possibilities I remember seeing in quite a while. Thanks; perhaps it may be of some use.
