Join us for an evening with Susan Haltom celebrating the tenth anniversary of her book, ONE WRITER'S GARDEN: EUDORA WELTY'S HOME PLACE. Susan led the Welty garden's restoration, befriending Welty in the process. Her award-winning book details this experience. Bring a picnic blanket or chair to the Welty lawn on Tuesday, October 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. as Susan reads select passages and takes your questions about Eudora Welty's garden. This event is free and open to the public. Copies of this book are available for purchase at our gift shop. For a limited time, enjoy 10% off for 10 years in print!

After curating the Welty garden for 25 years, Haltom now serves on the Eudora Welty Foundation board. She is past president of the Southern Garden History Society, past horticultural chairman of the Garden Club of Jackson, and lectures widely on historic garden methods and design.
