Book Notes

The Gannon Center for Women and Leadership at Loyola University Chicago is producing a series of booklets about Chicago Catholic women. Ann Ida Gannon, BVM by Robert Aguirre and Carol Frances Jegen, BVM by Prudence Moylan are now available. Gannon recently celebrated her 100th birthday. The booklet about Jegen details her contributions to adult education, ecumenism, Hispanic ministry, and more.
