News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
A book release reception and signing for “Whirlwinds & Small Voices” was held Saturday, October 18, at St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf , 9192 Waldemar Road, Indianapolis, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Co-authored by father-daughter team of Amy McConkey Robbins and Clarence McConkey, the book explores the difficult issues confronting those in the “serving” professions as they strive to maintain their energy and commitment while working in rewarding but often emotionally exhausting fields.

Ms. Robbins is a speech language pathologist who specializes in helping deaf/hard-of-hearing children learn to listen and to speak.  Her father, Clarence is a retired Methodist minister. Cast against a backdrop of a comparison between the story of the seven days of creation and a week in the life of a clinician, the authors utilize a mixture of anecdotes, personal reflections, and quotations from secular and non-secular sources, to offer a resource for recommitment and rejuvenation for those whose careers are focused on serving others. In his review of the book, renowned author and educator Parker Palmer has written, “This book itself is a gift to us all.”

More information about the book is available at www.Lucasparkbooks.com and online ordering is available at www.Amazon.com
