Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Feb. 14 through Feb. 19

Nonstop on-call weekend last week slid into a busy week, which is wrapping up.

I absolutely did peck at Henry's section of Before the Blood. The muse is sparking...hoping it bursts into flames this weekend. Spending time with writerly comrades at WriteOn Joliet last night and writer's workshop always helps, so...

So what else HAVE I been doing all week? Well, writing. And editing.

Check out the health, faith, and arts and entertainment calendars. Three of them can be found at the link below. Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page through the week.

Feature briefs for Tuesday (health), Thursday (faith), Friday (Arts and Entertainment), and Sunday (People) are also edited (texted and photos) by the lady of this blog, but only the stories have bylines.

And if you do peek at these stories, to quote our editor Kate Schott, "Thank you for reading The Herald-News." :)

Irreverent? It's co-writer and lead actress doesn't think so. The museum's development director said even "real" nuns are planning to attend. Mary McHale even stopped by The Herald-News in full habit. Watch the video. :)

The show is winding down, but local fun connected with the show is not. Enjoy tea and scones, engaging discussions, and an informative presentation about a Chicago area museum currently displaying many of the PBS' program's costumes.
