Margaret Willes at the Arts Centre

On Reading Matters and The Making of the English Gardener
 
Arts Centre
Swindon
Wednesday 09 May 2012
 
Two engaging, pleasurable, and enlightening activities: reading and gardening.
 
And England has a pretty solid history in both. Author, gardener, and former publisher for three London publishing houses and the National Trust, Margaret Willes has a wealth of information and stories about both reading and gardening.
 
Her beautifully-illustrated talk will shed light on why and how books have been read and acquired over the centuries; and will explore the social life of the English garden, especially when, why, and how the mania for gardening took root.
 
Doors: 12.30pm
 
Admission: 6, Concessions 5
