IN-PERSON: Emma Skurnick presents BECOMING A LOCAL: LETTER FROM A SMALL TOWN at Flyleaf Books
August 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
When Emma Skurnick first moved to Bynum, North Carolina she fell in love with a tiny town on the banks of the Haw River. In this place, the shopkeeper knew everyone by name, neighbors would help fix your car, and a glitter-covered giraffe could unexpectedly show up in your yard. Becoming a Local is a collection of stories about this beautiful, quirky spot on the map, with full-color watercolor paintings illustrating every page.
Emma Skurnick was born in New York, went to school in California, and ended up – somehow – making art and teaching others to trust their creativity in the heart of North Carolina. Her roots are fully, deeply planted here.
