    YW-CT - Berry Picking Outing

    Join YaleWomen CT as we get outside and pick strawberries together at Bishop’s Orchards in Guilford, CT.

    When: Sunday June 26th at 12:30pm

    Where: Bishop's Orchards in Guilford

    We will meet at Bishops to pick together.  After picking, we will go to the home of Caroline Piselli DNP ’15 in Branford to enjoy the fruits of our labor with homemade dessert fixings - shortcake, angel food cake, buttermilk biscuits, drinks and conversation. Plenty of 'fixings' will be available for 'take home sampling' also. 

    We will meet at Bishop's Orchard at 12:30 PM; the exact field location will be communicated the week prior based upon crop readiness. Once we've picked enough berries, we will head over to Caroline's house - around 1:30 ish.  Her address and directions will be provided to those who sign up. RSVP below

    Hoping you can join us for an enjoyable summer afternoon!

    Headshot of Natalie Eve Garrett, smilingBook cover with the text \Special Guest Speaker: Natalie Eve Garrett is an artist and a writer. She's the editor of THE LONELY STORIES, a cathartic collection of personal essays from 22 celebrated writers (including two Yale Women) exploring the joys and struggles of being alone, out now from Catapult. She's also the editor of EAT JOY (Catapult, 2019), a collection of stories exploring how food can help us cope in dark times, and THE ARTISTS' AND WRITERS' COOKBOOK (pH Books, 2016). A graduate of Yale University and the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, Natalie lives with her husband and two children in a town just outside DC, along the Potomac River.

    If you’re feeling lonely or if you’ve ever felt unseen, if you’re emboldened by solitude or secretly longing for it: Welcome to The Lonely Stories. This cathartic collection of essays illuminates an experience that so few of us openly discuss. Some stories are heartbreaking, such as Jesmyn Ward’s reckoning with the loss of her husband and Dina Nayeri’s reflection on immigrating to a foreign country. Others are witty, such as Lev Grossman’s rueful tale of heading to the woods or Anthony Doerr’s struggles with internet addiction. Still others celebrate the clarity of solitude, like Claire Dederer’s journey toward sobriety and Lidia Yuknavitch’s sensual look at desire. Thoughtful and affirming, The Lonely Stories reveals the complexities of an emotion we’ve all felt—reminding us that we're not alone.
