Cultures are influenced and changed by our
art, music, theatre and literature. Past cultures
are remembered by their arts. And our
future culture is shaped by our children. Every 100
years-all new people.

at The Book
Cellar in Chicago and we have

He had a double whammy of a book and CD release, which both

and will be appreciated by older kids and parents.
