Design*Sponge Book Tour: BOSTON!

by Grace Bonney


Every city on the In the Company of Women book tour feels special to me, but our Boston stop (which is less than a month away!) feels extra special because some of my dearest friends are a part of this panel and we’ll be kicking off the event with a presentation by someone, without whom this book would not be possible.

Along with Kelli Kehler (who manages our team here at DS) and I, photographer Sasha Israel was brave enough to join us on a whirlwind two-month trip across the country to photograph the majority of women featured in this book. Working with Sasha was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of my life so far and I am 100% sure that the reason the photographs in this book are so amazing is because Sasha is not only a great photographer, but she has a special way with people and is able to make them feel comfortable and confident almost immediately. So I’m thrilled to announce that at our Boston event (Sasha’s new home base!), Sasha will be starting the show with a special presentation and behind-the-scenes look at what it was like to meet and photograph all of these incredible women.

Following that presentation, I will be leading a panel with Boston locals, Jen Hill (of JHill Design), Joanne Chang (of Flour Bakery), Jonna Twigg (of Twigg’s Bindery), Danielle Colding (of DCDNY) and Jill Rosenwald.

You won’t want to miss this event, it’s going to be fantastic. Pick up a ticket here (each ticket includes a book, the panel talk, a book signing and a limited-edition illustrated tote, while supplies last) and we’ll see you on Thursday, October 6th at the Brattle Theater!
