Illène Pevec will speak about and sign her new book, Growing a Life, on Wednesday, September 28th at 7:30pm. About the Book: Part engaging conversation, part comprehensive fieldwork, Growing a Life demonstrates just how influential school and community gardening programs can be for adolescents. Follow Illène Pevec as she travels from rural Colorado to inner New York City and beyond to study remarkable gardening programs for at-risk teens. Candid interviews with more than eighty students, substantiated by relevant neuroscience research, explain the life-altering physical and emotional benefits of gardening. Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
