Tonight I'll be heading to WORD to celebrate Sophie Blackall's new book, "Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found". Sophie Blackall is the genius illustrator whom I've been following for a while now. She illustrates Missed Connections posts from New York City's Craigslist. Her subsequent illustrations are whimsical and sweet and most definitely beautiful works of art.
WORD is located in Greenpoint at 126 Franklin Street, near the corner of Franklin and Milton Street. The party is due to start at 7:00pm complete with real life stories of audience members' missed connections. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and the author will be present for signatures. I'm excited to see this woman speak after being an admirer of her work for so long. I love my neighborhood.
