A Day at the Gardens--Transitioning to Our Thursday Event with Peter Buffett

I feel like I haven't even had time to sit since returning from Book Expo. Alas, my return from New York turned into a two-day affair. That might someday turn into another post, if I can find the right book tie-in.

Sunday I spent selling art, nature, and gardening books at the grand opening of the Lynden Sculpture Garden. It's just beautiful! Bradley had the park designed to remind him of the Kansas City Park of his youth. I've recommended the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids to many of traveler. Now I have something to tout close to home.

The Lynden Sculpture Garden (formerly Bradley) is open Wednesdays from 10 to dusk and Sundays from Noon to 5 PM. Admission is $9, $7 for seniors and students, with children under 6 admitted free with a parent.

In September, Wild Space Dance Company is performing on the grounds. You learn these things when you are staffing tables at these sorts of things. Should be beautiful.

This week is Milwaukee's celebration of Peter Buffett's Life is What You Make it. Tomorrow (Wednesday, June 3rd) is Buffett's concert and conversation at the Pabst Theater. Friday is a private event for the Friends of 88Nine Radio at...the Lynden Sculpture Garden. Tickets for the Wednesday concert are still available.

Thursday (June 4th) is a talk and signing at Boswell Book Company at 7 PM.
