Get Caught Reading Book Club Picnic Week
May 10-14, 2021
10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Are you a member of a book club? Get caught reading “The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature” by J. Drew Lanham and bring a picnic lunch with your book club this week to Hershey Gardens. Set up your lawn chair and blanket or sit at one of our picnic tables and discuss this year’s Community Read selection. Book club representatives are invited to call for more information and group rates: 717-508-5970.
This year we join Hershey Public Library and community partners for the eighth year of the Longwood Gardens’ Community Read–a program designed to encourage reading for pleasure and start a conversation.
Birds are a lifelong passion for Drew Lanham and in his book, he examines his history and path, its influences, and his struggles. Readers follow his journey as a successful, wildlife ecologist who along the way uncovers lessons about legacy and his own need to inject deeper sense of human caring into his life and work.
“The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature” by J. Drew Lanham is available for purchase at major booksellers and available for borrowing at Hershey Public Library, as well as through Cumberland County and Lancaster County public libraries.
