Kyoko Mori speaks on life and knitting

Love reading and knitting, and looking for that perfect summer book? New York Times notable author Kyoko Mori will be reading from her stunning new memoir on Thursday, June 24th at the West Roxbury Branch Library, 1961 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA. Mori will begin her reading at 7pm and refreshments will be served at 6:30pm. This event is free and open to the public.

Mori's new memoir, YARN: REMEMBERING THE WAY HOME, chronicles crossing cultures, losing love, and finding home. As her marriage falls apart, so Kyoko Mori's understanding of knitting deepens. From flawed mittens to beautiful cardigans, hats and shawls, Kyoko draws the connection between knitting and her new life established in the U.S. Interspersed with the history of knitting and Mori's own knitting journey, the narrative contemplates the nature of love, loss, and what holds a marriage together. From the suicide of her mother to the last empty days of her marriage, Kyoko finds a way to begin again on her own terms.
