The almost-never-happens is happening! Authors Leanne Prain, Betsy Greer and I are going on a book tour together in October, 2014, to promote our respective books! We're doing so with the support of our publishers, Arsenal Pulp Press (Leanne and Betsy) and Sasquatch Books (me), and with the help of publicist Jennifer Abel Kovitz.
Make Your Voice Heard: The Intersection of Craft, Creativity, and Activism
We'll be doing events at twelve venues in nine cities across the U.S. and Canada. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear us in a panel discussion moderated by a local artist/maker, or to join us for a hands-on workshop.
Betsy Greer will tour in support of Craftivism: The Art & Craft of Activism (May 2014). Leanne Prain will share Strange Material: Storytelling Through Textiles (October 2014). And I'll tour in support of Make it Mighty Ugly: Exercises and Advice for Getting Creative Even When It Ain’t Pretty (September 2014).
