Hip-hop pioneer and ordained minister "Rev Run" Simmons and his wife of more than 20 years, Justine, will be in Naperville this month to promote their new book of marital wisdom called "Old School Love."
The couple will present the book at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31, at North Central College's Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Ave.
The book presents tried-and-true tips and guidelines based on the foundation of the Simmonses' marriage.

Each chapter of "Old School Love" offers stories, anecdotes and memories of Rev and Justine's marriage, their family, their experiences, their passion, and their deep faith and belief in God.
