HMLC Docent Irl Solomon has published a book entitled Making A Difference, talking about his life as a teacher. We will be recognizing Irl and celebrating his 1000th docent tour, which occurred this year. He will be signing the book after a discussion led by author Joe Regenbogen.

Irl began at the Museum in 2002, and this is his 17th year. He taught for 38 years in East St. Louis Schools, beginning in 1964. The last 29 years were at East St. Louis Sr. High, retiring in 2001. He won two Teacher of The Year Awards, and taught an estimated 5000 kids.
