In A Nice Little Place on the North Side, leading columnist
George Will returns to baseball with a deeply personal look at his hapless Chicago
Cubs and their often beatified home, Wrigley Field, as it turns one hundred years
old. This book examines both the unforgettable stories that forged the field’s
legend and the larger-than-life characters, from Wrigley and Ruth to Veeck,
Durocher, and Banks, who brought it glory, heartbreak, and scandal. Drawing upon his trademark knowledge and inimitable sense of humor, Will also explores
his childhood connections to the team, the Cubs’ future, and what keeps longsuffering
fans rooting for the home team after so many years of futility. George
Will is a columnist, television personality and author. With more than 450 newspapers
printing his columns, a biweekly Newsweek column and appearances as a political
commentator on ABC, Mr. Will may be one of the most influential writers in America.
Mr. Will won the Pulitzer Prize in 1976 for commentary.

“Today is the day we put aside to remember fallen heroes and to pray that no heroes will ever have to die for us again. It’s a day of thanks for the valor of others, a day to remember the splendor of America and those of her children who rest in this cemetery and others. It’s a day to be with the family and remember.”
– Ronald Reagan, May 1986
In tribute to the men and women who have lost their lives as a result of wounds suffered in a war zone while serving in the United States Armed Forces since September 11, 2001, Patriotic Productions has created the “Remembering Our Fallen” exhibit which has travelled across thirteen of our nation’s states. Now, for the first time, a tribute to California’s 725 fallen will travel. The exhibit will be unveiled at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, where it will be on display in the Library’s Air Force One Pavilion, before it travels across the state. The exhibit will be on display at the Reagan Library from January 31st through February 8th.
Please join us at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 31st, as the exhibit is unveiled to the California families of the fallen. There is no charge to attend the event, however regular Museum admission applies to get into the Air Force One Pavilion, where the event is held. We ask that the general public sit towards the back of the seating, to allow families the front rows.
“Remembering Our Fallen” was created to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Its legacy will be that these men and women will never be forgotten and that their names will be remembered and spoken.
