According to Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden President Karen Sargent,
“We are delighted to share the exciting news about the upcoming 17th annual A Writer’s Garden Literary Symposium and Luncheon benefiting the Women’s Council of the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden and A Woman’s Garden.
“Themed ‘Homes, Hospitality and Heavenly Gardens,’ the event features three fabulous speakers. The first is Kate Markert, Executive Director of the Hillwood Estate, Museum and Gardens in Washington D.C. and author of ‘A Garden for All Seasons.’ She will share behind-the-scenes insights and photos from the exquisite Washington D.C. garden of Marjorie Merriweather Post, businesswoman, socialite, and philanthropist. This is the first book to explore the remarkable grounds’ history and design.
“Adding to this fun and informative symposium are the dynamic duo Paolo Moschino and Philip Vergeylen, international designers based in London. Their newly released book ‘An Entertaining Life: Designing Town and Country’ includes entertaining stories, recipes from their favorite dinners, and notes on their celebrated design.
“This very special event is chaired by Mari Epperson and Sharon Ballew with Honorary Co-Chairs Ann Barbier-Mueller, her daughter Niña Tollett and daughters-in-law Katelyn Barbier-Mueller and Bridget Barbier-Mueller.
“A Writer’s Garden will take place Tuesday, November 7, in Rosine Hall at the Dallas Arboretum. Details are here: www.wcdabg.org/3/quiz.htm
“Leading up to A Writer’s Garden will be additional fundraising ‘Party Spots,’ which are three special fun and memorable gatherings, including a Sunset Cruise on White Rock Lake, all in keeping with the theme of ‘Homes, Hospitality and Heavenly Gardens.’
“These events support the mission and purpose for the Women’s Council, which is to provide for the maintenance and endowment of A Woman’s Garden, a principal garden of the Dallas Arboretum. Learn more at www.wcdabg.org.”
