Adult Programs – Fall 2014

Fireside Book Club

Tuesday Discussion Dates, December 9, January 13 and February 10
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Price includes refreshments and all four sessions.

Back by popular demand! Your garden is put to bed – and now is the perfect time to get cozy by the wood fire with books. Director of Education Melissa Cullina and last year’s club members together have selected four diverse books that blend the botanical and the literary – specially chosen for plant and garden enthusiasts! Gather around the Gardens’ fireside one Tuesday afternoon per month to discuss the book and enjoy coffee, tea and treats. Please sign up, and then simply read and come to the Visitor Center on the discussion date to share what you’ve experienced through reading each book.
