See the garden in a whole new way! Author event with Suzanne Staubach

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Book launch event for A Garden Miscellany.  Suzanne Staubach writes, pots, and gardens in northeast  Connecticut. After a long career in independent bookselling, she now writes and speaks about garden and ceramic history, and sells her handmade pottery  nationwide. She is the author of three previous books.

Gardens across the globe come in many sizes and styles,  but they share a remarkable number of similar components.    Suzanne Staubach revels in this connection in A Garden Miscellany. In short essays meant to be dipped in and out of, Staubach shares the history, evolution, and contemporary use of all the parts and  pieces that make up a home garden—from borders, compost bins, and decks to pergolas, roof gardens, statues, and troughs. You’ll learn that fairy gardens have their roots in the Tang dynasty, the difference between an arbor and a pergola, how geometry plays a role in garden design, what a ha-ha is, and much more. Featuring bold and whimsical illustrations by Julia Yellow and filled with interesting facts and anecdotes, A Garden Miscellany is a must-have for gardeners, plant lovers, and the naturally  curious everywhere.

Sponsored by the Avon Library, Garden Club of Avon, and West Avon Garden Club
