Annie Seyler, June 15th from 11am - 1 pm

We are excited to welcome Annie Seyler to promote her new book, Wisdom of Winter.
About the Book:
Insulated from societal mores by her glamorous mother and humble father, six-year-old Beatrice—barefoot in ratty overalls—tunes into animals, senses the unspoken, and thrives. But when tragedy penetrates their rural Vermont bubble, Beatrice is thrust into a world that tells her she has no place unless she hides her depth, pretties up, and falls in line. She complies.
Years later in San Francisco, incongruities in Beatrice’s life abound. What’s real is hidden. What's false is celebrated. She numbs and sidesteps and, despite inner warnings, artfully outruns thoughts of her family, the girl she once was, and the woman she pretends to be. But when a cascade of events steers her back to her childhood home, a discovery in a rundown barn quiets her. In the still point, she sees her crossroads: carry on the known path or step into uncertainty. Her future rests on her interpretation of change. Anxiety and loss. Or hope and renewal. She must decide who she is.
