Kingston's own coming to a bookshelf near you
While spring traditionally brings flowers and warmer weather, a slew of new books often appear as well. Here’s a preview of some Kingston-connected books making (or, in some cases, made) their way to a shelf near you. (Note: synopses come courtesy of the publisher or author.)
At the risk of sounding cliched, spring really does seem to awaken in many people a desire to renew oneself and one’s surroundings. This could take the form of spring cleaning, starting a new activity, updating the decor in one’s home or any number of other “refreshments” for yourself and/or your surroundings. In terms of refreshing personal surroundings, if the latest exhibition at Gallery Raymond featuring the women artists of that establishment is anything to go by, it seems like a number of people have embraced this idea for spring.
