At first glance, this would appear to be a book about the design and building of furniture, in particular a pair of chairs. But it is actually a book about memory and love, about the passage of time and the passing of one generation to the next.
Frances and Spencer Shapiro are twin siblings, born May 16, 1996. In "Two Chairs" their father Saul explores his journey through woodworking and his experience as a father watching his children grow. He offers advice gleaned from his life as a woodworker. It is a story of inspiration, learning, beauty and pride. It is their story writ in wood.
