see you there? my 2011 events so far

MY 2011 EVENTS CALENDAR looks a little different from previous years—at least so far. The late winter, usually a sleepy, housebound time, is loaded with garden lectures and readings from my upcoming book that you may want to know about.

I’ll be roaming the Northeast in the early going, in places as close to home as the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Hudson Valley of New York, but also across Massachusetts and as far as New Hampshire, Maine, New Jersey and coastal Connecticut. Events here in the garden will begin again in April; stay tuned for a fuller schedule of those, with just the first couple mentioned below.

What’s planned already:

Saturday, February 19, 2 PM: Lecture to benefit Berkshire Botanical Garden, Monument Mountain Regional High School, Great Barrington, MA.

Thursday, March 3, 7 PM: R.J. Julia Booksellers, Madison, CT.

Saturday, March 5, 2 PM: Lecture to benefit Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston, MA, (508) 869-6111.

Tuesday, March 8, 5:30 PM: Gibson’s Bookstore, Concord, NH.

Saturday, March 12, 7:30 PM: Oblong Books and Music, Millerton, NY.

Wednesday, March 16: Lecture to benefit Wave Hill, New York City.

  1. Karen P. says:

    I’ve got my ticket for your NYC lecture! The anticipation will help the dark days of January and February go by much quicker!

    1. Margaret says:

      @Elizabeth: Haven’t planned beyond the Northeast yet, but I know I will be doing “virtual” book club events and so on (I love technology and it’s gotten so good, I can “go” anywhere right from here!). More to come…

  2. Andrea from NC says:

    Please come to NC! You would love it so much…and between the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill, Duke Gardens in Durham and the Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, you should have a big turnout. Oh, better yet: McIntrye’s Books in Fearrington Village right by me loves to host authors, has lovely gardens, and a world class Inn. Please consider it?

  3. Brenda Rose says:

    How about coming to Buffalo? It’s not that far and there are tons of garden lovers here. You can stay with me for free!

    One year I want to make the trip out to see your open gardens, one year . . . .

  4. Diantha says:

    Oh, I second Andrea and Helen! There’s also Tony’s Juniper Level Botanic Gardens. All well worth the trip, and we and others would love to hear you.

    1. Margaret says:

      Welcome, Karen. I will open registration shortly; haven’t finalized all the class dates/times/etc. but will do in the coming week.
