"Got your book yesterday. It is AMAZING! - Brava! I really couldn't put it down. The sit-in happened before I was all that involved in disability rights - or I was just starting out here in Louisville with a group but I really knew nothing about national stuff. It was only after The Rag started and I began to know the national scene that I realized what an amazing thing people had done in '77. Of course Mary Jane told me all about it, as did others, but your photos and text brought it home in a way that nothing had before. So many people - who looked SO YOUNG! Judy, Ed, Mary Lou Breslin, Mary Jane - almost every page I turned I'd see somebody I had known or known about! So thank you so much for sending it - and more than that, thank you for DOING IT! It is a great commemoration of a great page from history. All the best,"
