From Remi at Charlotte Yarn!

Hi everyone,There’s a new book coming out in January that I think you’ll enjoy reading. It’s called The Friday Night Knitting Club and has been described as “a charming and moving novel about female friendship and the experiences that knit us together-even when we least expect it.”We are lucky to have the book’s author Kate Jacobs, come to Charlotte Yarn on Friday, February 9th. I would like to invite you to meet Kate for a reception and book signing from 1pm-3pm. Kate Jacobs will read and answer your questions about her book.The book has garnered mentions in upcoming issues of Glamour, Redbook, and OK! magazine.

Here’s a recent review:

From Booklist”Georgia Walker’s entire life is wrapped up in running her knitting store, Walker and Daughter, and caring for her 12-year-old daughter, Dakota. With the help of Anita, a lively widow in her seventies, Georgia starts the Friday Night Knitting Club, which draws loyal customers and a few oddballs. Darwin Chiu, a feminist grad student, believes knitting is downright old-fashioned, but she’s drawn to the club as her young marriage threatens to unravel. Lucie, 42, a television producer, is about to become a mother for the first time–without a man in her life. Brash book editor KC finds her career has stalled unexpectedly, while brilliant Peri works at Walker and Daughter by day and designs handbags at night. Georgia gets her own taste of upheaval when Dakota’s father reappears, hoping for a second chance. The yarn picks up steam as it draws to a conclusion, and an unexpected tragedy makes it impossible to put down. Jacobs’ winning first novel is bound to have appeal among book clubs.” Kristine Huntley

If you purchase a book from the shop, you are automatically entered in a drawing to receive an autographed totebag signed by Kate Jacobs and filled with goodies.
