Fall 2020 Literary Series

Following on the success of our summer 2020 webinar programs, our fall 2020 webinar series celebrated some of the most distinguished garden writers of the year. Webinars in this seven-part, biweekly series featured presentations via Zoom by authors of books filled with horticultural and design inspiration, stories of garden creation, and portraits of the people who are changing the way we think about the world of plants. As part of the registration for each webinar, one copy of the book was available at a discount from its retail price!
