I spent the weekend in Columbia, Missouri enjoying my 15-year law school reunion, the best offense in college football, and the company of some world-class journalists. The University of Missouri’s world-famous School of Journalism celebrated its centennial this past week, and thanks to my friend T.J. Quinn (a world-class journalist himself, and a recurring Teenage Kicks character), I was able to hang with some of the finest purveyors of the printed word (hi Annie, Colleen, Sonja, Courtney, et al.), one of whom has a new book to plug.
Cathleen Falsani, the acclaimed religion writer at the Chicago Sun-Times and author of the much-beloved The God Factor: Inside the Spiritual Lives of Public People, is back with Sin Boldly: A Field Guide for Grace, a memoir that sees her traveling around the world to find and explore connections to the divine. The book is reaping mountains of praise, and you are heartily encouraged to pick it up.
Ms. Falsani also writes the popular blog The Dude Abides, which has been added to the links at the right of this page.
