Glitter and glue… sounds like the makings of a fun afterschool program resulting in sticky fingers and colorful sprinkles of glitter covering the floor.

But no! Glitter & Glue is an event designed for adults—parents and grandparents alike—and we promise there will be no sticky fingers involved.

Glitter & Glue is the title of an exciting new book released by author Kelly Corrigan. It’s receiving rave reviews, so we are thrilled and honored to snag this incredibly-talented author for an appearance during her upcoming book tour!

Just a little more “glitter” in the form of book reviews:

trade paperback cover“Kelly Corrigan is no stranger to mining the depths of her heart…[here] Corrigan turns the microscope on her relationship with her own mother…And through her own experience of caring for children, she begins, for the first time, to appreciate the complex woman who raised her.” —O Magazine

“Corrigan remains a lively, nimble cheerleader for the joys of family.”—People

“Kelly Corrigan’s heartfelt homage to motherhood is every bit as tough and funny as it is nostalgic and searching.  It’s a tale about growing up, gaining wisdom, and reconciling with Mom but it’s also an honest meditation on our deepest fears of death and abandonment.  I loved this book, I was moved by this book, and now I will share this book with my own mother— along with my renewed appreciation for certain debts of love that can never be repaid.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of The Signature of All Things

March 20 – Save the date & hope to see you there!
