If spring is giving you the itch to garden…

May 22nd’s lunchtime DRC event

 may be just the ticket!

Carol Siyahi Hicks, a vice president with The Dayton Foundation, a

former literary magazine editor and author of the book, Gifts from the

, will be our featured guest speaker at 11:30 a.m. on

Wednesday, May 22, in the Dayton Racquet Club
Library. She will

read from and talk about her new book.

Gifts from the Garden has been described as a kind of philosophy of

gardening. It is filled with the rich detail that gardens engender and a

passion for gardens and nature. Her prose is filled with the music of

poetry and personal experience and observations that are honest,

uplifting and ultimately provocative. She will make you smile…and

cause you to remember your mother’s garden…or a friend’s…or your

own. Gifts from the Garden will provide a "walk" through gardens and

surrounding fields and the mysteries of nature and life.

So for something a little different during the gardening season, come

hear this prize-winning writer and spend your lunch "traveling" through

a southwestern Ohio garden and countryside.

Carol will have copies of her book available if you would like one

signed by the author for that special gardener or nature lover in your
