From the writer and artist with over 1 million Instagram followers comes My Inner Sky: On Embracing Day, Night, and All the Times in Between, a collection of essays and illustrations that parallel the phases of the sky–twilight, golden hour, night, and dawn–with all of the moments, be they small, momentous, heartbreaking, anxiety inducing, or healing, that life brings our way.
In this insightful and warm book, Andrew explores the wide spectrum of feelings that exist between joy and sorrow, in the process offering insights about trauma and healing, the meaning of home and the challenges of loneliness, finding love in the most unexpected of places–from birds nesting on a sculpture to a ride on the subway–and a resounding case for why sometimes you have to put yourself in the path of magic.
Andrew is the New York Times bestselling author of Am I There Yet?: The Loop-de-loop, Zigzagging Journey to Adulthood. She will be in conversation with Mary Laura Philpott, the author of the nationally bestselling memoir-in-essays I Miss You When I Blink, one of NPR’s Favorite Books of 2019. In addition to their conversation, this event will also include a workshop with Andrew.
This event is hosted by our friends at Sixth & I in Washington DC, a center for arts, entertainment, and ideas and a synagogue that reimagines how religion and community can enhance people’s everyday lives.
The JCCSF is proud to be a promotional partner for this event!
