Down the Garden Path Book Club

January 19 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

New for 2019– the Down the Garden Path book club will meet on scheduled Saturdays from January—May 2019. Join us as we discuss a variety of fiction and nonfiction titles that will help keep you warm during the long winter days until spring finally arrives. The selected titles will not include gardening how-to books but instead will focus on the personal experience of gardens and gardening.

The first Down the Garden Path Book Club will meet on Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in the Bilder Family Meeting Room. We will discuss the first book in Beverley Nichols’s Allways trilogy, Down the Garden Path, first published in 1932. Beverley Nichols (1898-1983) was a prolific English author of fiction, nonfiction, children’s books, and plays.  Down the Garden Path is a humorous semi-autobiographical account of his adventures as a beginner gardener. While plants take a major role in this story, Nichols also introduces the reader to the unforgettable cast of human and animal characters that live in his 1930s Huntingdonshire community.

For more information and for a copy of the book contact Teresa at teresai@dkpl.org or (815) 756-9568 ext. 2114.
