Heather Ross - How to Catch A Frog : And Other Stories of Family, Love, Dysfunction, Survival and DIY (10-5 Sunday)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Much of Heather Ross's creative work has been inspired by her being born into an eccentric family of artists and idealists in a rural corner of Vermont during the 1970s. According to Heather, that environment was defined by stunning natural beauty, creative and innovative living, and daily lessons in self-reliance. It also included equal parts of general dysfunction, a self-imposed but nearly inescapable poverty, and little exposure to basic life skills.

"How to Catch a Frog" is a collection of those stories, plus others that show Ross's eventual route to success as an artist, entrepreneur, and mother, all animated by Ross s delightful illustrations and how-to instructions.
