Catherynne Valente’s next Orphan’s Tales book comes out in just under a month. To celebrate it, she invited her artist friends to submit to a gallery show of art inspired by the first book. Here’s K. Tempest’s offering:
It’s called “Sigrid’s Prayer”. If you want to understand the meaning behind it, you’ll have to read the book. You should read the book, anyway, because it’s more incredible than I can say.
The show, called the Three Wishes Tour, will not only feature this and other art pieces and jewelry but also a reading by the author and a musical performance of songs based on The Orphan’s Tales. Tour schedule:
Oct. 27th 7-10 pm
The Carriage House
12620 Larchmere Blvd
December 1st 7-10pm

Cambridge, MA 02139

If you can get to any of these events you’re definitely in for a treat. The Cities of Coin and Spice is bound to be even more amazing than the first book.
