  • The Little Winter Book of Gnomes book signing

    Friday, January 31 at 6:00 pm

    Join Kristen Sevig for a book signing featuring her cozy book of gnomes (and gnomes)!


    ABOUT THE BOOK:  Kirsten Sevig grew up hearing about little gnomes in great Nordic folktales. When she realized that a “gnome” was also another word for a proverb, she brought the two together. The result is a charming collection of Scandinavian wisdom accented by whimsical illustrations. There are gnome women chopping wood (“chop your own wood and it will warm you twice”), men surreptitiously knitting (“two balls of yarn are better than one”), and gnome kids making snow angels, skiing, and more.

    In The Little Winter Book of Gnomes, Sevig invites readers into a cozy wonderland of her own prolific imagination. With recipes...

    Join Alexander Gardner for a talk on his book, The Life of Jamgon Kongtrul the Great: Tibet's Great Treasure.

    ABOUT THE BOOK:  The first-ever extensive biography of Tibet’s most famous nonsectarian Buddhist lama

  • I Live in the Land of Apples Book Launch

    Tuesday, January 21 at 7:00 pm

    Join Onion River Press and Phoenix Books Burlington to celebrate the launch of I Live in the Land of Apples, the poignant memoir by Charlotte author, JoAnna Blaine Easton.

    ABOUT THE BOOK: Compelled to make sense of her life's mysteries, Easton's memoir outlines the detective work, joys and struggles involved in understanding that life. As a photographer and poet, her keen experience began early and lingers still, guided by an inner compass developed to field loneliness and difference. The outer world of a bi-ethnic home life, learning and mastery, years of living abroad, interests and accomplishments dazzle and puzzle her by turns. Original poems bring a lyrical flow to a more-or-less linear timeline. Easton's education and career as an Educational...
