Harper’s Books in East Hampton will celebrate the launch of artist Meghan Boody’s new book “Meghan Boody: We Are Gods in the Chrysalis” with cocktails and a book signing by Ms. Boody from 5 to 7 p.m.

The publication takes the reader on a fantastical journey through the strange and beautiful worlds of Ms. Boody’s imagination. Her pictures, dioramas and photo-vitrines tell stories of young women entangled in difficult adventures. Female versions of the male heroic quest, these image-based novellas unfold in a unique brew of fairy tale, myth and personal memory. Considered a pioneer of digital imaging, Ms. Boody composites hundreds of Photoshop layers to make her heroic tableaux.
