On the afternoon of April 21, 2012, I’ll be speaking at the Darwell Public Library – first at 1 pm, then again at 3 pm.
Do stop by, if you can spare the time – and if you knit, spin, crochet, embroider, cross stitch, or work on any other kind of reasonably portable handiwork, please feel free to bring it along! Far from distracting me, I find it encouraging to see people working in the audience while I talk. :)
I’ll be speaking about the process of writing Just Keep Knitting, reading a few short excerpts from the book, answering audience questions, and signing books (which will be available for purchase). I will also have all the knitted projects from the book with me, so that people can see the finished items and to serve as a focal point for discussing the healing nature of craft and creativity.
Come by if you can – we are about an hour west of Edmonton or St Albert. The library is just south of the four way stop that is Darwell: it’s the blue building at the northernmost end of the complex of structures that includes the Golden Age Hall, the Darwell Hall, and the library. I’d love to see you there!
