Booksigning w Maira Kalman

December 17th, 3 pm – 5 pm
Paper Trail

Artist/writer Maira Kalman will be signing her new book “Women Holding Things”.  In Maira’s own words, this book is

“a love song to women
and at times everyone
(as exhausted as we all are
from holding everything)

it was born from a little booklet
made during the pandemic.
and then expanded upon.
with 86 paintings.
and digressions
of course.”

Signed copies are also available to purchase online.
