the task only refers to first names and last names, so middle names are irrelevant.

Trish (trishhartuk) | 2694 comments So Martha Graham is in both lists - can she be used for both options, if it were separate books (I'm assuming one book wouldn't be allowed)?

A book by Martha Graham would work for the one book option - Martha fits option 1, Graham fits option 2.

yes, it clearly fits - no need to ask for approval for books that clearly fit the task.

Thanks, but I didn't think it was clear because the author's name includes "Hall" which is not clear from her bio if it is her middle name or the start of her last name.

Take a look at the FAQs and the Rules - spaces determine names. So, Hall would only be part of her last name if it were hyphenated Hall-Kelly).

It works for book 2, since the last name is Graham, as long as it is verified in the ebook only thread.

No. Last name of author must match last name of dancer.
