Share a story

A celebratory collection rather than a chronicle, Hail gives voice to those who worked and studied here, to the sportsfans and concertgoers, the taxpayers and the angels, the employers of graduates and the vendors of goods and services. Instead of the authority of a single narrative, it offers the range of a panorama and the variety of a collage.
