Louise Wrinkle discusses her new book, Listen to the Land: Creating a Southern Woodland Garden, in a conversation with her friend Jim Landon. Her story is an engaging, informative, and poignant memoir of a life spent tending a woodland oasis in Alabama. Wrinkle grew up on this land, returned to it in midlife, and has, for the last 30 years, tended it with care and creativity, according to her philosophy of allowing the land to speak for itself.
For more than 35 years she has been an active and distinguished member of the Garden Club of America (GCA), serving as chairman of its Horticulture Committee, on the executive committee, and as a recognized horticulture judge for GCA and other flower shows. She was a Founding Board Member of the Garden Conservancy, whose mission is to preserve exceptional American gardens and landscapes for the education and inspiration of the public. She has served numerous years as a board member for the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and the Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Alabama.
Book signing and light refreshments will follow the conversation. Admission for all lectures is $10, $5 members, and free to AHC Insiders unless otherwise noted. Reservations are required. Please call 404.814.4150 for more information.
