Saturday, May 10, 2014 - 2:30pm to 3:30pm

Sat., May 10 • 2:30-3:30 pm • $25

Yvonne Horn, award-winning travel writer, shares a PowerPoint presentation of eight gardens with tales to tell, gardens that express the passion of their creator. Among them are the poison garden at England’s Alnwick Castle; “Cougar Annie’s” garden in the wilderness of Vancouver Island; and Kokadera, Kyoto’s garden run amok in moss.

Yvonne Michie Horn has won multiple awards during her work as a travel writer, including two Lowell Thomas awards for Foreign Travel. Early on in her travels Yvonne began to understand that one can learn a lot about a place from its gardens, and while she admires the grand gardens of the world, she seeks out those with a compelling, unique story to be told. Yvonne is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers, American Society of Journalists and Authors, and Garden Writers Association. When not traveling, she headquarters in Sonoma County where she negotiates for gardening space with deer, turkeys, and other critters.
