The Mudflapps Live @ The Knot (8:00 pm)
The Mudflapps play every Monday in the Pub from 8pm onwards.. $4 16oz Pints of Smithwick’s Ale. Uncomplicate your Mondays. No TVs in the bar. Eat, drink, converse and enjoy free live music. Food and drink served late. Never a cover. The Mudflapps are a Chicago- based band that plays original acoustic music. Whether plugged-in on the big stage, or truly unplugged and unamplified, they give audiences a dose of country storytelling at its finest. The songs weave tales of woe, whiskey, and wild living into a mix of styles with nearly universal appeal. Sometimes it sounds like honky-tonk, sometimes more like bluegrass, sometimes more like jug band blues. It often sounds like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Upright bass, guitars and banjo combine with strong songwriting and tight vocal harmony to create a show fit for stages of any size.

Book Reading: Jeanne Bishop On Forgiving Her Sister's Murderer (6:30 pm - 9:00 pm)

Join us for an evening co-hosted with the James B. Moran Center for Youth Advocacy, as author and defense attorney Jeanne Bishop presents her new book,Change of Heart: Justice, Mercy and Making Peace with My Sister’s Killer. The book traces Jeanne’s journey from the brutal murder of her family members by a Winnetka teenager, who received three life sentences for the crime, to forgiving him and visiting him in prison. Jeanne advocates for an end to juvenile life sentences and supports the mission of the Moran Center to provide legal services and counseling to young people in the criminal justice system.

Jeanne will read from her book, sign copies, and join in a discussion with the audience and Moran Center attorney Patrick Keenan-Devlin about forgiveness, redemption, and the moral issues raised by overly harsh sentences for children. We will be soliciting (voluntary) donations for the work of the Moran Center to assist low-income Evanston youth and their families. Please come for what promises to be a remarkable evening!
