Ember celebrates with students from the nation's first charter school.

“Many thanks to my family, friends, capitol colleagues and Grant Park neighbors who came by our book launch event Tuesday night! I so appreciated your support and good wishes.  Some of my favorite guests were the charter school students who joined us on the cover of the book.”   ~ Ember
