Tom Bailey's reading for his book The Grace That Keeps This World was a great success. I had less then 48 Hours to compose 20 minutes of original music for his reading. It was quite a challenge. Tom is a great human being, he really worked hard to bring a lot of the folks from this tiny community to the reading, he is modest and intelligent and has a personality that fills the room. I can say that it was truly a pleasure to read his novel and get to talk to him first hand about some of the parts of the book that I was interested in. Make sure to read his book as well.
