Heidi,

The podcast gets better each month. The dual interview with
Linda Glaser and Phil Mysel was
so moving and entertaining. And, Nancy Pearl was delightful. I especially enjoyed her review of "Thread of Grace", which I read recently and her "Rule of 50".

That was fun, Heidi! I wrote down the books recommended by Nancy Perl and will make sure we have them in our library!
