GNYIPA member Linda Gnat-Mullin at her reading and book signing for Kisses Out of the Blue at The 440 Gallery in Brooklyn. Linda's reading was a special event for visual artist Karen Gibbons, whose dreamlike paintings and collages provided the perfect environment for Linda's soulful, strange and true stories, told to offer readers a wider sense of the world's -- and their own -- heretofore hidden possibilities. Master chef and restaurateur Fabiane Lima provided beautiful treats for the occasion. The gallery reported that this was their best-attended event in memory. Kisses Out of the Blue is available on Amazon, where it has received a five-star rating, and at other online retailers.
