Fitch Lecture: North Carolina: Land of Water, Land of Sky
November 7 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
During this special lecture, Bland Simpson will read from and speak about his new book, North Carolina: Land of Water, Land of Sky. He will present and discuss photographs from the book, with help from the photographers, including his wife Ann Cary Simpson and Tom Earnhardt. Reception and book-signing to follow.
Named in memory of Jenny Fitch, local plant enthusiast and passionate gardener, this lecture takes place each fall. Mrs. Fitch passed away in 1995. The endowment for the lecture series was graciously donated by her husband, R.B. Fitch, in 1997 after friends and family sent scores of memorial gifts to the Garden. We have been able to bring a renowned gardener or horticulturist to Chapel Hill each year since 1999 to present the Jenny Fitch lecture.
