Artisanal Pencil Sharpener, David Rees

David Rees energetically eschews  mechanical pencils and electric sharpeners. In his new book, How to Sharpen Pencils,  he educates the reader on the satisfying process of hand-sharpening a #2 pencil.
Rees presents two pencil sharpening events in the Hudson Valley this weekend - he'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.
