4/26 NONA SMITH / Stuffed

Join us at Gallery Bookshop for an exciting event with local author Nona Smith, featuring her book STUFFED: EMPTYING THE HOARDER'S NEST. Nona will be joining us on Saturday April 26th at 6:30 pm.

"If you've ever dreamed about discovering Aladdin's Cave, read Nona Smith's Stuffed. When Smith and her husband are put in charge of liquidating a hoarder's treasure-crammed estate, they must move heaven and earth and fight a devil or two to complete the job. Smith presents this tale of acquisitiveness gone awry with grace, compassion, and plenty of humor. You'll never think about your own stuff the same way again." --Susan Bono, editor and publisher of Tiny Lights: A Journey of Personal Narrative

"Stuffed is a hard story told softly. Bridging the gulf between collecting and its less attractive cousin, hoarding, it combines the thrills of a treasure hunt with the occasional frisson of horror. It explores the elements of a tragic compulsion with humor, but always maintains compassion for those who never learned to let go. --Cynthia Wall, psychotherapist and author of The Courage to Trust: a guide to building deep and lasting relationships
