What do a quiet afternoon with a book and fireworks after dark on the Fourth of July have in common? Donna Grucci-Butler.

Grucci-Butler is president of the famed Grucci Fireworks company of Long Island. And while she's not preparing for Commerce Bank Celebrates America -- her company's big Independence Day show -- she's trying to sneak in some reading.
