Praise for Joan Nathan

"was extremely impressed with how sincerely Joan interacted with everyone she met. The fact that she was also interested in us—in our culture, our foods, our traditions—really made her visit special. She has probably left knowing more about Arkansas than I do. Her curiosity and enthusiasm made her an absolute pleasure to host and delighted those who met her.Joan really made us feel as if she wanted to be here with us, and that is invaluable. Sometimes, it is clear that visiting speakers are just there to give a talk and leave. But Joan was there for the whole experience."
