A literary magic carpet ride!
Ashoan’s Rug was woven from a dream, bought by a rug merchant, loved by a blind child, prayed on by a priest, left to a housekeeper, imbued with magic by a jaded teacher, found by a handyman, inherited by a shrink, fought over by two lovers, and eventually bid on at an auction by a sister whose brother believed the rug would change her life.
Ashoan’s Rug is a book about how the work of art is not in the creating, but in how the artwork changes lives.
Carrie has been a freelance writer and arts advocate for the last 45 years. She has published dozens of short stories, hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles, and has also written three books: Ashoan’s Rug, Lillian’s Garden and A Family Story of Alzheimer’s: The Last Childhood.
