Book Launch: Playing with a Full Deck


ILI’s own co–founder and Executive Director, Alexis Johnson, celebrates the launch of her book of memoirs on November 12, 2014 at 7PM at Broadside Books on Main Street Northampton. Alexis’ book, Playing with a Full Deck, is a delightfully wise and witty walk through life that strings pearls of wisdom with a rowdy sense of humor.
