Asheville artist and gardening expert, Peter Loewer will return to City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, November 28th at 3 p.m. to celebrate the reissue of Solving Deer Problems. He will discuss methods on keeping these denizens of field and forest out of your carefully cultivated gardens. He will also take questions on other gardening topics. Peter Loewer has contributed to many national gardening magazines and is the author and illustrator of many gardening books. He is vice president of the Botanical Gardens in Asheville.
On Saturday, December 5th at 1 p.m. artist and former WCU professor Joseph Meigs will present his short story collection, Artists’ Tale at City Lights Bookstore. Kathryn Byer said of the collection, “When Joseph Meigs spins a tale, you can expect it to be sharp-witted, observant,
and downright entertaining. After all, Meigs is a latter-day Renaissance man—Shakespeare scholar, cinema aficionado, popular university professor, and an artist himself. So, he knows the territory about which he writes, and he knows its inhabitants’ quirks, fears, passions, and jealousies.” To reserve copies of Artists’ Tale please call City Lights Bookstore at 828-586-9499.
