A New York Debut for Outer Island

Posted Tuesday, Jan 04th, 2011 at 10:27am

After our Portland book reading and signing, my mom and I headed off to NYC. On December 11, we had a book reading in her studio. Molly Shea did a great job of setting up the studio for the reading including putting out yummy eats and an Outer Island plate.

We also dug out her mother's embroidered black shawl: NYC5

    Love the photos. I would love a shawl like that ( to try and dance flamenco) and the sperm whale tooth necklace awesome. Great publication dance too.
