On October 9, 2009, Barnes & Noble Lincoln Triangle hosted an event for Alyn Shipton’s new book I Feel a Song Coming On: The Life of Jimmy McHugh, the first biography of the classic American songwriter. Tom Santopietro moderated a conversation with Alyn Shipton and McHugh’s grandson Jim McHugh, and Wesla Whitfield performed hit titles from the McHugh songbook.
