Join us for our One Book One Garden discussion featuring The Hidden Life of Trees by German-born author Peter Wohlleben.
In his international bestseller, Wohlleben, a forest ranger in Germany, walks the reader through the complex life of trees and makes the case that the forest is a social network with trees communicating, nurturing, and supporting each other underground through a “woodwide web.”
In 2007, Wohlleben began publishing books about his views on forest management and ecology. The New York Times describes him as “a forester who devotes his professional efforts to preserving the forest rather than managing it for lumber production.” His publisher, Greystone Books, notes “…a walk in the woods will never be the same again.”
Our discussion will be led by Stacy Stoldt, manager of public library services at the Lenhardt Library, and Mary Plunkett, manager of interpretive programs. Selections from the Lenhardt Library’s Rare Book Collection will be available for viewing. Please register early as space is limited.
Copies of The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben are available for purchase in the Garden Shop.
