Come hear tales from the dark side of the garden with Rosemary Harris, author of the Dirty Business Mystery series (Pushing Up Daisies,
The Big Dirt Nap, and Dead Head). Harris, whose well-loved series about gardener and amateur sleuth Paula Holliday has garnered multiple awards, is also president of the Mystery Writers of America's NY Chapter and a master gardener in Connecticut.
In this lively lecture, Harris walks us through the history of the garden, through the lens of mischief and mayhem, beginning with Adam and Eve, and leading to her modern day Dirty Business Mystery sleuths. She'll also discuss the dirty business of writing, and what led her into the garden to find her stories.
Book signing follows the program.
