YAM Community Night  – July 13th

YAM Community Night
Art Reception and Author Event
July 13 5-7  PM
Kristin Sample, Author, Lake Highlands Resident and YAMily will present her latest book, One Square Mile during our July Artists Receptions. Sample the book as deeply personal, likening it to “The House on Mango Street meets, well, my ’90s childhood.”
Having spent considerable time on Long Island, she draws from her own experiences and a profound appreciation for The House on Mango Street. Sample was inspired to write her book after meeting Sandra Cisneros, the author of The House on Mango Street, during Cisneros’ visit to Hockaday School. Sample, who had been teaching the book to her students and had loved it since her teenage years, found the encounter particularly motivating.
“It is such a relatable piece of literature that at any age I could encounter it and discover something new in it,” says Sample. “So just hearing her talk about the writing process and about making a career out of writing was inspiring to me.”
Come, meet Kristin and enjoy an evening with your YAMily!
