BOOK-IT THEATRE PRESENTS: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Friday, December 11th at 10:00am. Everyone is welcome to this free program.
When her parents die of cholera in Colonial India, spoiled Mary Lennox must go live with her uncle at Misselthwaite Manor in Yorkshire, England. Uncle Archibald Craven is a brooding, mysterious man who mostly leaves Mary to her own devices. Lonely and friendless, Mary chafes in her new situation until she discovers the key to an unkempt garden and, with the aid of a local boy named Dickon, learns how to make it grow. The newly-found key unlocks not only the garden, but Mary’s capacity to love and nurture.
AUTHOR JACK NISBET presents: The Longest Journey
Due to unforeseen circumstances this program will be rescheduled at a later date. Naturalist Jack Nisbet will be presenting his latest book, Ancient Places: People and Landscape in the Emerging Northwest. In the fall of 1902, a Welch farmer happened upon one odd rock perched on a slope above the Willamette River. It turned out to be a meteorite, and the slow unfolding of its story revealed links to Northwest mining, museum politics, Ice Age floods, human nature, and the deep history of the universe.
Fridays from 11:30am - Noon.
