(ok so i wrote this post earlier today and blogger erased it, so here it is again...the first one was better, though...sorry!)
last week while i was going through my junk email i found an email from one of our local bookstores, Davis Kidd. these are monthly emails that i almost never read, but this day i opened it. upon reading the email i saw that there was going to be a book signing by a new knitting novelist. there was to be a reading of the book followed by a book signing. sounds like fun! the new book is called The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society, by Beth Pattillo.
i called up a friend of mine and we decided to go. it turns out that she is a local pastor here in town who ironically knows my pastor as they were in a group together of female pastors! the book is roughly based on a group of knitters at a local church (the church i went to preschool at) and also roughly based on a little tennessee town. it is really neat to have a local knitting novelist! there is to be a sequel due out in january 2009! here is a pic of her signing my book:
it was a lovely evening!
