KatScrap Studio's NEW Reading Club!

“KatScrap Studio Reading Club”
Thursday, July 29
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Reading is an important part of the creative process, through the written words the author takes you on a journey completely manifested in your own imagination. With our busy lives demanding attention, this wonderful opportunity to connect with our inner creative soul is lost. “The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake” by Aimee Bender has been selected as our first book.

“Eating the cake her mother has prepared for her ninth birthday, Rose Edelstein discovers she has a gift: she can taste her mother’s emotions in the food she prepares. Soon, every bite Rose takes is filled with feelings—not just her mother’s but those of other people as well—and what might have been a gift becomes a burden and then, perhaps, a curse. Because this is a novel rooted in family, Rose will learn that she is not the only Edelstein with a peculiar gift or burden. How she and others learn to cope—or not, as the case may be—is the small, sad story Rose shares. Bender’s earlier work has often been described as surrealistic; however, this novel seems more informed by a kind of magical realism that struggles with transformation and sometimes—fleetingly—succeeds, as in the case of the novel’s vividly realized Los Angeles setting. But the effect soon fades, and the reader is left only with a lingering feeling of emptiness and the realization that sadness tastes a lot like bitterness. --Michael Cart”

The Reading Club is FREE to attend.

You can order the book below, or get a copy from your local bookstore!

ATC’s are miniature works of art about the same size as baseball cards (2 ½ x 3 ½ inches). The cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media) watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. Our focus is on a friendly ATC art trading in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Everyone is welcome here. All mediums are welcome too-stamping, painting, drawing, collage, mixed media, fabric, clay-you name it, we do it! And we are not just trading ATCs; we will be making them too.
