Mary Irish: A Place All Our Own
Now - January 24, 2013
7 - 8:30 p.m.
Join author (and former Garden employee) Mary Irish for a talk and readings from her new book, A Place All Our Own: Lives Entwined in a Desert Garden. A graceful, witty writer with obvious affection for her garden, Irish tells the story of how she and her husband Gary transformed a barren half-acre plot around their house in the center of Greater Phoenix into a haven for its creators and their friends, for the birds and insects and other critters that have discovered it, and for the plants that have made it their home. A Q&A period, plus book sale and signing of her new book and a selection of her other books, will follow the presentation.
