The Alabama Project at Loyola

Gradually, I’m settling back into Alabama time and writing about the amazing experiences I had this summer in Poland and back in Illinois. One highlight was the trip to the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center at Loyola University’s Medical Center to deliver some of The Alabama Project photos and to present background on the project during a reception there. The pictures that follow taken by my friend, Tanya, provide a glimpse at the exhibit and speaking engagement.

  1. So glad I could be part of your day at Loyola! Gained a greater appreciation for the pictures seeing the images in full scale; enlightened by your presentation; had a wonderful time catching up with your family, some of which I hadn’t seen since our high school days; and genuinely enjoyed meeting Suzanne, who I now call friend.
