Longwood Gardens Community Read Book Discussion: The Home Place
April 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
We are thrilled to announce that our library is partnering with the Longwood Gardens Community Read program throughout the Spring and Summer. This year’s featured adult title is The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature by J. Drew Lanham. Birds are a lifelong passion for Lanham, and in The Home Place, he also examines his personal history and struggles. Readers follow his journey as a successful wildlife ecologist who along the way uncovers lessons about legacy and his own need to inject a deeper sense of human caring into his life and work. In honor of Earth Day participants may join in on Zoom to discuss this groundbreaking book. To register visit our website. Participants will receive a free copy of the book. After you register for the program library staff will email you to set up an appointment time to pick up the book at our Contactless Pickup.
The Longwood Gardens Community Read is a program designed to encourage reading for pleasure and start a conversation. Focusing on literature about gardens, plants, and the natural world, we feature an exceptional book annually (paired with a similarly themed younger readers’ book) through a variety of programs, discussions, and lectures across all community partner organizations. For more information about the Community Read, go to http://www.longwoodgardens.org/community-read.
