Hi all --
The "Les Epreuves d'Ecritures" piece sounds very interesting -- I would love
to find out what those 50 words/concepts were. It was an online piece, but is
no longer online I take it? -- My online searching hasn't found anything yet
anyway. I have also asked our lovely Walker Librarians to take a look around to
see what they can find, so will see if we have anything interesting here --
