The Event: Tom and Linda Daschle and Nathan and Jill Daschle hosted a party to celebrate the publication of "Bygone Days," a collection of John Penor's photography from rural South Dakota in the 194o's and 50's.

The Scene: Guests at the intimate celebration were treated to a reading from poet and songwriter Patti Smith, who wrote the book's foreword. Smith also entertained the crowd with an acoustic performance of several songs including one called "Living," dedicated to the Daschle's most recent grandchild called.
The Guests: Nora Maccoby, FCC Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein, Former Lt. Governor of Virginia Don Beyer and his wife Megan, Julia Cohen and Tom and Elissa Davidson.
