NORTH CONWAY, NH – Author talk and knitting circle at White Birch Books with ANN HOOD , author of Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting, co-sponsored with Close Knit Sisters and Kearsarge Inn
Bring in your knitting or simply join us for a cozy circle and author talk with Ann Hood who will share how the power of knitting, stitch-by-stitch, can teach us to live in the moment and let go.
Both knitters and non-knitters alike find serenity in the clicking of needles, the fuzzy array of colors and textures – the artistry of creating something with their own hands. The rhythmic practice has kept us warm for centuries. In KNITTING YARNS: Writers on Knitting, the magic of knitting is captured in black and white through tales of tragedy, acceptance and love. From Anne LeClaire coping with not being able to conceive, to the craft calming Elissa Schapell’s frantic worry, to Hood’s own nightmare of living on after her daughter’s death, Knitting Yarns is a testament to the power of craft to sustain us through human survival and triumph alike. Nestled between twenty-seven original essays by best-selling authors like Barbara Kingsolver (The Poisonwood Bible), Andre Dubus III (House of Sand and Fog), Sue Grafton (D is for Deadbeat), and Anita Shreve (The Pilot’s Wife) are five unique knitting patterns by knitting guru Helen Bingham.
