National Library Week Special Event: Yarn Harlot Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Discusses the Art of Knitting and Her New Book 'Things I Learned From Knitting ... whether I wanted to or not'
This event was held on April 11, 2008 at Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
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 havenâ€™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 (yarnharlot.ca/blog/), chronicles the daily travails of life as she parents, partners, knits... and writes.
