Course description

Join master gardener and natural history writer Cindy Crosby for a fun look at great (and not-so-great) gardens in literature and poetry. From Agatha Christie's mystery series, to Brother Cadfael's medieval herb garden, to Michael Pollan's garden in "Second Nature," to the "secret garden" beloved of children's literature, there are so many gardens that helped shape the books we love to read. Discover how gardens and garden imagery figure in the works of Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Goudge, Rumer Godden, May Sarton, Mary Oliver, Elizabeth Gilbert, Henry Mitchell, Barbara Kingsolver, and Lewis Carroll--and many more!
