Writers With Dirty Hands: The Garden Passions of Vita Sackville-West and Eudora Welty
September 29 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 am
Climbing roses, the scent of herbs, and vibrant blossoms on paths winding through garden rooms… Join us as we explore the tales of two writers and their gardens – one in Sissinghurst, England, the other in Jackson, Mississippi. Award-winning authors Vita Sackville-West and Eudora Welty were deeply inspired by and connected to their gardens, Vita designing Sissinghurst Castle’s gardens and Eudora tending the garden at the home where she lived and wrote for 75 years. Donna Bingham, avid Tulsa gardener, will share how these two accomplished authors expressed their passions, frustrations and triumphs in gardening through their published works and personal writings.
