Europa Challenge Blog: The Girl on the Via Flaminia

Challenge Button

I’m over on the Europa Challenge Blog today with a review of Alfred Hayes’s “The Girl on the Via Flaminia.” Originally published in 1949, the story is set in Rome as World War II winds down. It’s a powerful depiction of the unforeseen personal and legal complications of a simple business arrangement between a US GI and an Italian woman. Please click on over and check it out!

Last week I posted about my delight at having my cover story in the August 2011 issue of the Illinois Bar Journal, “To Tweet Or Not To Tweet,” selected as Pick of the Week by TechnoLawyer’s BlawgWorld

This week I’m preening all over again because the ABA Journal, published by the American Bar Association, picked up my cover story for this month’s (September 2011) issue of the IBJ, “The Five Biggest Business Mistakes Lawyers Make,” for which I interviewed Wauconda, Illinois lawyer Timothy Storm. I predict that Storm’s upcoming presentation at the ISBA’s Solo and Small Firm Conference in Springfield will have lawyers standing up and shouting “AMEN!” Please click on over and read the articles–ISBA has generously made them available to the public, free of charge. If you’re an Illinois lawyer and you’re NOT an ISBA member, what are you thinking? Go join right now! (This has been an unpaid public service and self-promotional announcement 😉 )
