Friends, I am so excited to tell you about the book tour for authors Betsy Greer, Leanne Prain and Kim Werker. These three amazing women have all published really fantastic books in the last few months and are going on a tour together around the US & Canada. The tour, called Make Your Voice Heard: The Intersection of Craft, Creativity and Activism starts this week in San Francisco. I’ll be moderating a panel discuss with these three women at Diesel Books in Oakland this Thursday evening, October 2 at 7 pm. The event is FREE and open to the public. Their books will be for sale and they’ll be signing books after the discussion.
The authors: Betsy Greer, author of Craftivism: The Art & Craft of Activism (published May 2014), Leanne Prain, author of of Strange Material: Storytelling Through Textiles (published October 2014), and Kim Werker, author of Make it Mighty Ugly: Exercises and Advice for Getting Creative Even When It Ain’t Pretty (published September 2014). Among other things, we’ll discuss the intersection of craft and activism, the “ugly” side of making stuff.
Not in the Bay Area to come on Thursday? Here’s a list of all the events associated with the book tour around the US and Canada:
