My Wild Garden: An Exclusive Preview
Sunday, Jan 27 | 10:30 AM | Merfish Teen Center
In his most recent work, renowned Israeli author Meir Shalev writes about his Jezreel Valley garden with humor and affection. Here, where the politics of the Middle East is one of planters, ants and flowers, Shalev tells of the colors, fragrances and sounds that rise up from his garden and ruminates on the relationship between land and humanity.
He also teaches a little literature, history, mythology and practical horticultural tips along the way. An exclusive opportunity to hear about this best-selling nonfiction book, currently only available in Hebrew, before it is published in English next year.
