Quotes by Karin - Book Request

At the Celebration of Life event on October 5th, hundreds of quote books were distributed as keepsakes. This 74 page collection of quotes was compiled by the readers of Karin Diamond's blog. Karin was a lover of words and storytelling. Since 2009, she publicly shared her prose with the world as she navigated trials and celebrations while deeply exploring all of human emotions. This collection is dedicated to her readers, whom she treasured, respected, and loved.

There are still some books available that have been set aside to be mailed to Karin's readers and friends who were not able to attend the Celebration of Life event. Simply fill in your information in the form below and a book will be mailed to you. Indicate if you have the need for multiple copies. That's all you need to do.

Email Craig Diamond with questions or other requests: craigtdiamond@gmail.com

Celebration of Life - October 5th, 2:00

The Celebration of Life event for Karin Diamond is only a few days away. It is shaping up to be a fantastic gathering filled with musical and dance performances, speakers, pictures, food, non-alcoholic drinks, and beer and wine. The collective talent and collaboration for this event is extraordinary and will be unlike any other event of its kind. We are excited to honor and celebrate Karin at this family-friendly event on Saturday. There is no shortage of space for the many people who loved Karin. Here are some details to help you plan.

40 Griffin Road N, Windsor, CT 06095

Please arrive on time for the 2:00 start of the program. Leave yourself time for the short walk over to the SummerWind venue from the parking lot. The seated portion of the program will start on time - this is not a drop in style event. If you have arranged with us to drop off food/drink, you may bring it by anytime Saturday morning or arrive a few minutes early to bring it to the food /drink tables.

There is no dress attire expectation. The program will be held under SummerWind’s beautiful large open sided tent. Dress for the weather and expect the temperature to drop significantly as the sun lowers in the sky. Wear whatever you’d like. FYI, Karin loved the color yellow.

After the seated program, there will be time to sign the guestbook in the adjacent tent, watch the slideshow that will be playing on repeat, view and take printed photograph keepsakes, flip through your copy of the Quotes by Karin book, and gather with friends old and new while enjoying light fare and drinks.

Leave when you need to, or stay as long as you want. When event cleanup begins, you’re welcome to join friends and family at the Cracker Barrel Pub at 30 Main St, Tariffville, CT. This local watering hole is a short 2.5 mile drive from SummerWind where a cash bar for pub food and drink is available. (The after-event gathering at the Cracker Barrel Pub is not to be confused with the similarly named Cracker Barrel restaurant franchise known for savory home-cooked style biscuits and gravy.)
