The Pen & The Trowel

Presentation by Marta McDowell  (www.martamcdowell.com)

Marta teaches landscape history and horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden and lectures widely.  For years she has been occupied with writers who garden and whose horticultural interests have changed Marta’s planting beds as well as her bookshelves. Starting with Mark Twain and connecting authors ranging from Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott, and Beatrix Potter, this lecture explores the writing-gardening connection.
