Longwood Gardens Community Read Adult Book Discussion

Wednesday, April 247:00—8:00 PMCommunity Room, Kitchen + Middle Abington Free Library1030 Old York Rd, Abington, PA, 19001

Join a book discussion, led by Dr. Karen Weekes, of The Last Garden in England, by Julia Kelly.  

The Last Garden in England explores the meaning that we can all find in gardens. Taking place in 1907, 1944, and present day, this novel connects five women—from the gardens’ original designer through to the modern-day designer charged with restoring their beauty—all of whom find true meaning and solace in the gardens.

We will enjoy tea and cookies during this discussion.
