So sorry to hear this. My condolences to her family and friends. Her invaluable "Dancers and Choreographers: A Selected Bibliography" is on my bookshelf. RIP.

There are about a million books on my shelves that I heard about through her invaluable "Attitudes and Arabesques."  Back before the internet made it so much easier to spread the news about a new publication, she did the hard work of gathering all that information, and then painstakingly transcribing it for us all.  I got to know her a little bit, and spent some time looking through her personal collection, while she still lived in California -- it was like a sleepover at the Dance Collection.
