We’re thrilled to welcome writer, editor & crafter Alanna Okun for a signing of her first book, ‘The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater’. She’ll visit the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in Manhattan on Thursday, March 29th from 6:30pm – 8pm. She’ll read from her book, and be available to sign copies purchased at our Studio. If you’re in the New York area, we’d love to have you join us for this literary soiree.
If you visit Alanna’s website, you’ll find… she writes about everything. From grief, to personal style, impressions of the little things and the arc of a whole year, her voice rings true in all of it. Essay-writing is a peculiar pursuit in the blogger-era, which on the one hand lends itself perfectly, and on another, threatens the vitality of printed musings. Alanna’s insights and endless cleverness delight us, and we know you’ll think so, too.
‘The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater’ is a memoir about life truths learned through crafting.
“Alanna Okun knows that crafting keeps her anxiety at bay. She knows that no one will ever be as good a knitting teacher as her beloved grandmother. And she knows that even when we can’t control anything else, we can at least control the sticks, string, and fabric right in front of us.”
If you want to join us & meet Alanna, you can RSVP via MindBody. And if you’d like to have her sign your copy, make sure you’ve purchased it at our Studio, and not from another retailer. We hope you’ll join us for what will certainly be a wonderful evening!
