Program: Gardening is Murder

A humorous horticultural presentation, Tuesday, June 18, @ 5:30 p.m.

Join the Athol Public Library at our temporary location at 82 Freedom Street (by Ocean State Job Lot) on Tuesday, June 18, at 5:30 p.m., when we welcome Neal Sanders for Gardening is Murder, a humorous horticultural presentation.
Why do gardeners turn to the internet to find outrageous solutions to simple problems?   Why does the introduction of one plant into garden start a game of musical chairs that results in the displacement of at least two other plants?   And why does anyone plant potatoes when supermarkets sell them in September for less than twenty cents a pound?

These are the questions that readers of author Neal Sanders’ popular blog, The Principal Undergardener, get to ponder.  And, on Tuesday, June 18, Sanders will speak at the Athol Public Library.  There, he will share his humorous observations about gardening and gardeners.

Sanders is also the author of six mysteries and, in the course of his talk, he’ll tell where he gets his ideas for his stories, many of which center on garden clubs, why his wife no longer comes in the door saying, “you wouldn’t believe what happened to me today”, and neither of them is any longer privy to town gossip.

Neal Sanders retired from the corporate world in 2005. His 'second act' is as a writer of mysteries. His sixth book, Deal Killer was published in March 2013.  He is also the author of Murder Imperfect, The Garden Club Gang, A Murder in the Garden Club, Murder for a Worthy Cause and The Accidental Spy.
