In his new book, <em>How to Sharpen Pencils</em>, &nbsp;he educates the reader on the satisfying process of hand-sharpening a #2 pencil.<br />Rees presents two pencil sharpening events in the Hudson Valley this weekend - he&#39;ll be at Hudson Valley Auctioneers in Beacon on Saturday 5/5 and at Spotty Dog Books and Ale in Hudson on Sunday 5/6.&nbsp;</p><p><br />&nbsp;</p> Thu, 03 May 2012 15:44:22 +0000 Sarah LaDuke 38202 at http://wamc.org Artisanal Pencil Sharpener, David Rees
