This digital-age Renaissance woman offers more than tips on destressing and DIY projects. Her taste making blog Design*Sponge features female empowerment. Bonney's new book, In the Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice from Over 100 Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs (Artisan, 2016), contains intersectional creativity and entrepreneurship stories from dozens of women working on the cutting edge of their industries. Speaking alongside other New York-based business-women, including graphic design artist Paula Grief and resturateurs Elise Kornack and Anna Hieronimus, Bonney will be at the Morton Memorial Library in Rhinecliff Saturday, October 22, at 6pm. Tickets $35, including a book copy and specially designed totebag. Oblongbooks.com.
