Down the Garden Path Book Club: The Paper Garden
May 11 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Meet Mary Granville Pendarves Delany (1700-1788). Join us for the final meeting of the Down the Garden Path Book Club. We will explore the life of this remarkable woman when we discuss the book The Paper Garden by Molly Peacock.
After two marriages and the death of her second husband, Mrs. Delany at age 72 finds her life’s work by discovering mixed-media collage. Using scissors and paper Mrs. Delany created 985 botanically correct cut-paper flowers. Remarkable reproductions of her work are included in the book.
Copies of the book are available at the library in the Adult Services department.
