A Field Guide to Other People’s Trees
May 2, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Author Reading and Book Signing
Local author Margot Anne Kelley will read from her new book, A Field Guide to Other People’s Trees, at the Cellardoor Winery Villa in Rockport. When Margot and Rob Kelley moved into their old farmhouse in Martinsville, they inherited the past as well as the property. Working with a local arborist to identify and determine the ages of the trees in her yard, Kelley imagines the history of the place through the various trees and other sorts of greenery that grow there. In this field guide, we learn about the past owners of the home and the trees from their era.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase and be signed my Ms. Kelley, with a portion of the sales benefiting the Land Trust. Wine tasting and light refreshments will be served at the Villa at 47 West Street, Rockport. The reception is free and open to the public.
