Last night, at Anderson's Bookshop in Downer's Grove, here in Illinois, Brother Mickey McGrath and Alan Hommerding had a book signing event, highlighting their new book, Saint Cecilia's Orchestra . Here a a few photos of the event.
It was a delightful evening. Alan and Mickey shared their experiences of working together on the book. Alan read some of his poetry and Mickey described the process of creating the artwork. This book is a real gem. At the NPM convention this summer, WLP will be sponsoring an event featuring the art and poetry, augmented with some wonderful video clips, music, and more. You won't want to miss this. Have you registered for the NPM convention yet? If not, you can do so here.
Well, tonight the Chicago Blackhawks play the Philadelphia Flyers in game three of the Stanley Cup finals. Want to see a sign of just how excited Chicago is about our Hawks? Take a look at this photo I snapped in my neighborhood on Monday night:
This is the LaSalle Bank Building, probably standing at about forty stories. There are other buildings in the city displaying similar images. Exciting times around here. Let's Go Hawks!
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
