Anna Balakian was also present at the Celebration Weekend, along with Evelyn.

Her words can be found in Chapter Eleven of Celebration.

Our site has always been most grateful to Valerie Harms editor of Celebration and one of the creatorsWeekend for giving us permission to provide the book online.

You can easily pick up a copy on This link might work for a day or two!

Although Hinz and Balakian, like Nin are no longer with us, their words and connection to

Anaïs live on, reconstructing the world.
