BOOK-IT THEATRE PRESENTS: The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Tuesday, December 8th at 3:30pm. 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.

Naturalist Jack Nisbet will be presenting his latest book, Ancient Places: People and Landscape in the Emerging Northwest. Geologists and historians are still trying to sort out exactly what happened when a powerful earthquake shook much of the Inland Northwest in December of 1872.
