In this lively, funny memoir, Peggy Orenstein sets out to make a sweater from scratch—shearing, spinning, dyeing wool—and in the process discovers how we find our deepest selves through craft. Orenstein spins a yarn that will appeal to everyone.
Peggy Orenstein is also the author of the New York Times best-sellers Boys & Sex, Girls & Sex, Cinderella Ate My Daughter and Waiting for Daisy as well as Don’t Call Me Princess, Flux, and the classic SchoolGirls.
Peggy will be joined in conversation by Rebecca Kneale Gould, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies and co-chair of the Philosophy, Religion and Environment Focus at Middlebury College, author of At Home in Nature: Modern Homesteading and Spiritual Practice in America, member of the Thoreau Society’s board of directors, and proud a shepherd with a small flock.
