How to Not Always Be Working: NY Times featured artist Marlee Grace is having a book signing

Marlee Grace, when she was living here, always amazed those of us who frequented her Have Company Division Avenue store. But those who delved deeper also enjoyed her artist residency program, where artists from all over the nation would venture here to create works of art that she would place on display. 

And while she has been out of the area for a couple years now, her work continues to evolve as she roams the earth. (She even caught the eye of the NY Times for her work on the Instagram account Personal Practice.)

On her spin back through Grand Rapids, this time she will be arriving with a new book, “How to Not Always Be Working," she has written and will be signing copies at East Hill’s Books & Mortar this Sunday, November 11 from noon to 1:00 p.m.

According to Books & Mortar, “How to Not Always Be Working” is “Part workbook, part advice manual, part love letter. [The book] gently ventures into the liminal space where phone meets life, helping readers to define their work, their job, and their breaks."

In addition to having a chance to secure Grace’s signature on your copy of her new book, she will be reading selections as well as hosting conversations at this charming and intimate bookstore in our city.
