Sophie Blackall - Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found (Co-sponsored by The Boston Globe)

12/15/2011 7:00 pm

Australian artist and kids' book illustrator Sophie Blackall breathes new and wondrous life into the Missed Connections section of Craigslist.com with whimsical, funny, and achingly beautiful paintings based on the short descriptions of strangers who would be more. This book is the perfect gift for the one you love (whether they know it or not).

Judy Rosenberg, owner of classic Cambridge-cakery Rosie's Bakery and author of The Rosie's Bakery All-Butter, Cream-Filled, Sugar-Packed Baking Book will be joining us as well. There will be cake, beautiful illustrations, and so much fun.

Also, please join us for refreshments at the after-reading party at Finale here in Coolidge Corner sponsored by Meredith Goldstein of the Boston Globe's Love Letters. To attend the afterparty, please RSVP by emailing events@globe.com. Who knows what connections you'll make? Have your own missed connection story you'd be willing to share at the event? Send it to events@brooklinebooksmith.com.
