Two programs in one!
- "The Woman Behind The Secret Garden," presented by Denise Roberts, Reference Assistant at the Marion Public Library; and
- "A Place for Escape: Great Maytham and the Country House Garden," presented by Kathy Wilson, Director of the Granger House Museum & Cultural Center
Learn about Frances Hodgson Burnett, the woman behind The Secret Garden and other children's classics, and discover the history of Great Maytham Hall, home of the walled rose garden and its rickety door that served as the inspiration for Burnett's book. We'll also get a glimpse into country houses of England, their gardens and their history.
An optional $5 donation will afford attendees a chance to win The Secret Garden basket; proceeds will be used to purchase plants for the Granger House's Secret Garden Workshop on Saturday, August 1.
Registration is appreciated so we can plan accordingly.
