“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
--Audre Lorde

  • A Passage for Dissent: The Best of Sipapu, 1970-1988
    • Noel Peattie on the word Sipapu: “For me, who chanced on the word, only dimly understanding its significance, it’s a personal message… If I have borrowed the term unfairly, at least I made my Sipapu a place of emergence for others: contributors, poets, and raisers of issues...

      It is, or it started out to be, an underground paper about underground papers, and it became one librarian’s exploration of the lesser-known islands of the world of print”--1

    • Zoia Horn, interviewed in Sipapu; "This librarian cared; she had eyes in the back of her head. She knew what people needed, and shared her knowledge and expertise. She was cool, and seemingly impersonal, but she was a strong catalyst for strengthening the individual in this particular society. It was no wonder that I chose to become a librarian."--355
