AADL kicks off National Libraray Week with the Yarn Harlot! Stephanie Pearl-McPhee made two spectacular visits to AADL last year, where over 300 knitters at each event heard her comments about knitting and life. She is the best-selling author of At Knit's End, Knitting Rules and other tongue-in-cheek meditations on this obsession with knitting. Stephanie returns to AADL to talk, knit, laugh, and discuss her new book. A book signing will follow, with books for sale courtesy of Borders.

Not just for knitters, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is a humorist for all world-weary parents, friends of knitters, adult children who haven’t yet begun therapy to complain about their upbringing, and those who just like to look at lovely scarves in fuzzy wool. Her award-winning blog, Yarn Harlot (, chronicles the daily travails of life as she parents, partners, knits... and writes.
