NHMGA Fall Confernce

We are pleased to once again be the booksellers for the
Saturday, October 21 noon - 4pm 
The Currier Museum in Manchester!
with author Margaret Roach @ 1pm
and to include a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright house

After ruminating on the bigger picture in her memoir And I Shall Have Some Peace There, Margaret Roach has returned to the garden, insisting as ever that we must garden with both our head and heart, or as she expresses it, with "horticultural how-to and woo-woo." In THE BACKYARD PARABLES, Roach uses her fundamental understanding of the natural world, philosophy, and life to explore the ways that gardening saved and instructed her, and meditates on the science and spirituality of nature, reminding her readers and herself to keep on digging.
