Some of you may know that I grew up in Suffield, Ohio. As a result I feel that my connection to the Connecticut town is very special.
Although I have lived in Connecticut for more than 25 years I only went to Suffield for the first time a few months ago after meeting Michele Holcombe, the former site administrator for the Phelps-Hatheway House, at a SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) meeting. Michele introduced me to Lynn Mervosh, the current site administrator, and we immediately began talking about an art quilt exhibit to coincide with the Suffield Days Celebration on September 12-13, 2015. Read more about the art exhibit at http://www.marylachmandesign.blogspot.com
One thing led to another and Lynn asked me to do a poetry reading from my book on Saturday at 2:00 p.m.!
I will be reading a few of my favorite poems and signing copies of the book (probably in the Summer House). I hope you can make it.
