Bookclub pick for April is How to Knit a Human by Anna Jacobson.

It will be the last Thursday of the month, April 25th. Due to the public holiday we will be meeting from 4:00-5:00pm.

A short intro:

How to Knit a Human is Anna’s quest to find her self and her memory after experiencing psychosis and Electroconvulsive therapy in 2011, at the age of twenty-three. As the memory barriers begin to crumble, Anna weaves her experiences around the gaps of memories that are still not accessible. Anna writes and creates art on her own terms. This book is a reclamation of story and self.
