Gardens & Romance: Author Visit with Jane Delury, Hedge

July 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us for an in-person visit with Jane Delury, author of Hedge. Jane will join us for an author presentation, chat and signing of this deeply moving portrait of a woman’s longing to be a good mother while still answering the call of her soul and mind.

This event will be interactive with the author, a chance to connect with fellow book lovers and build community with us here in Irvington.

You ticket cost includes a paperback copy of the book, a drink and shared appetizers for the group. Books will be brought to the event to be distributed, but we will offer advance pick up in case you’d like to get your book early to read it before the event.

Here’s how this works. There are two steps to confirming you’re on the list:

1. Get your ticket on this listing. This tells us you want to come and is your official ticket in.
2. Download the Bookclubs app, join our Book Club and RSVP to our invitation for this event. This is where you’ll get details on time, location and other updates closer to the event.

About the Book:

Maud is a talented garden historian and devoted mother to Ella and Louise. Motivated to reinvigorate her career and escape her troubled marriage, she accepts a summer job restoring the garden of a lush, nineteenth- century Hudson Valley estate.

While waiting for her daughters to join her at the end of their school year, Maud spends time with a coworker, archeologist Gabriel Crews, whose passion for landscape history matches her own. When their immediate and intense friendship ignites, it sets in motion a seismic shock that will profoundly change Maud’s life, as well as the lives of everyone she cares about.

“Reading Hedge is like spending time with your best friend: the daring, smart, compassionate one whose wisdom opens your eyes even as her secrets stun you. A warm, glorious and exciting read!” —Jean Kwok, author of Girl in Translation and Searching for Sylvie Lee
