Yarnbombing, cherry blossoms and a Vancouver literary landmark

What do knitters, writers and cherry blossoms have in common?:

Help writing blossom at Historic Joy Kogawa House! Join Leanne Prain and Mandy Moore, co-authors of the book Yarn Bombing: The Art of Crochet and Knit Graffiti (Arsenal Pulp Press), as we cover the Joy Kogawa cherry tree in hundreds of knitted blossoms.
