I was readily welcomed by those I have been working with at the Register, like John Burger and Tom Wehner, and those luminaries whose work I have admired for years. like Fr John Bartunek, Fr Owen Kearns, Celeste and Michael Behe, and Donna Marie Cooper-O'Boyle.
Here I am, feeling like one of the family, seated between my friend Kristin (read her post here, HT for the photo). Fr Owen Kearns, who is the publisher of both the National Catholic Register and Faith and Family magazine, Claudia, director of Circle Media, her assistant Tracey and her lovely daughter. On the left is Donna Marie Cooper-O'Boyle, author of many books including Mother Teresa and Me (which I will be reviewing shortly) and Dan Burke.
We enjoyed discussing how Circle Media is adapting to the New Media revolution, and recent efforts to expand its readership, as well as the exciting birth of Faith and Family books.
If you haven't subscribed to the National Catholic Register, and Faith and Family, you should, they are the finest, most orthodox Catholic periodicals out there. I am honored to be an occasional contributor. Staff members from Circle Media will be on hand at the Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show in King of Prussia PA this week, and at SQPN New Media Convention in Boston, MA Aug 7-8. Be sure to say hi and tell them Leticia sent you!
