As the weather starts to cool and the days shorten, we look forward to reconvening our Horticulture Book Club…and invite you to join us!

Our book club is a casual, yet serious reading group driven by the interests of our members. We read general interest horticulture books chosen by the members of the group. Our meetings include some lively conversation, an opportunity to make new friends and a snack.

We meet in the living room at Gaiety Hollow, located at 545 Mission Street SE, Salem. Our first meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 10 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm.  We will continue to meet on the second Tuesday of each month through next March, when we head outside once again with our gardening gloves!

No book has been assigned for the September meeting. Hopefully, you have read, or are reading something that you would like to share with the group. Perhaps you found a good read over the summer and could give us a short review.  One member will tell us about The Botany of Desire, a classic she is reading now. We will then discuss which books we want to pursue as a group for both October and November.

If you are interested in joining our Horticulture Book Club, or need more information, please contact Ruth Roberts at rroberts@wvi.com or (503) 581-0774.
