Currently featured in a nationwide blog tour, Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind, the new book by writer/artist Jen Payne, will make an appearance at Seaside Home & Gifts in Stony Creek on Saturday, December 2 from 2pm – 5pm. See the Evidence, meet the author, and support local business during this pre-holiday book signing event.
Award-winning poet and artist Mary O’Connor says “It’s uncanny how Jen Payne grabs hold of seemingly ordinary strands of life — then surprises us with new meaning. A master at storytelling, she brings us to the realization that the stories she shares are actually ours. An engaging, thought provoking and masterful reflection on our collective legacy in this world.”
Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind follows on the heels of Payne’s 2014 well-received book LOOK UP! Musings on the Nature of Mindfulness, and continues a dialogue about our innate connection with nature. It features 73 poems and more than 80 original and vintage photographs, including a series of discarded dental flossers that inspired the title of the book.
In addition to featuring books by local authors like Payne, Seaside Home & Gifts offers a unique selection of locally and New England made products by skilled artisans as well as customized gifts for special occasions.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. Seaside Home & Gifts is located at 172 Thimble Islands Road in Branford, CT. For more information please visit www.3chairspublishing.com.
