If I say it was a night to remember, will you forgive me the cliche?

Last evening more than 120 guests gathered at the President’s House in Urbana to celebrate ninety years of publishing by the University of Illinois Press. As President Joe White said in his comments, it was just about as perfect an autumn evening in central Illinois as one could hope for.

Here are some shots from our Press photogs:
