Chanticleer Announces New Book
The Chanticleer Foundation in Wayne, PA, announces the publication of the new 176-page book, Chanticleer, A Pleasure Garden. This is the first major book specifically about the garden and has just been released by the University of Pennsylvania Press. Written by Adrian Higgins of The Washington Post, it features photography by local artist Rob Cardillo.
Bill Thomas, Executive Director of the Chanticleer Foundation, presented Kathy Mulroy, Executive Director of the Radnor Memorial Library with a copy of the new book on Tuesday, April 12. The book will become part of the Chanticleer Book Collection at the Library.
The book’s author Adrian Higgins will present this year’s Chanticleer Lecture at the Library on Sunday, May 15, 2011 at 2pm in the Winsor Room. He will discuss his year of conversations and rambles with Chanticleer's team of gardeners and artisans. He will interpret the garden's development and reinvention as it changes from season to season. Admission to the lecture is free and books will be available for sale and signing.
Chanticleer’s founder Adolph G. Rosengarten, Jr. was a Library Board member and a long-time supporter of the library. The Chanticleer Foundation has continued close ties with the organization. This year’s presentation is the 12th annual Chanticleer Lecture and, thanks to Chanticleer, the Library has a long and interesting collection of gardening books.
Chanticleer is a 35-acre pleasure garden in Wayne, Pennsylvania, about 30 minutes west of Philadelphia. For more information on the garden, visit the garden’s website www.chanticleergarden.org.
