Writer in the Garden, a talk at Hope Library
On March 20, the Hope Library will host the first speaker in a series of Brown Bag Lunches, which begin at noon. The first guest speaker will be Anne Perkins, of Thomaston.
Perkins, a local farmer and gardener, wants to spread the word that gardens can be both beautiful and productive, that few experiences rival that of eating something you have grown yourself and that the literature of the garden extends far beyond “how-to” books.
She will discuss some of the classics of garden literature that have enchanted her, what makes these books and writers especially compelling to her and which have influenced her and others.
Take your lunch. Beverages and dessert will be provided. FMI: 763-3553 or www.hope.lib.me.us.
