Book Signing: Marfa Garden
September 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Four Authors – Jim Fissel (author), Martha Hughes (author), Jim Martinez (author), Mary Lou Saxon(author), and Dallas Baxter (foreword) – will be on hand for a book signing and talk about how a diverse group of plant lovers pulled off this stunning guide celebrating the flowering plants of the Chihuahuan Desert.
“Marfa Garden” is a full-color celebration of more than sixty flowering plants of the Chihuahuan Desert and neighboring regions. The desert, North America’s second largest at 140,000 square miles, spans West Texas, parts of New Mexico and Arizona, and northern Mexico. It is a surprising showcase for colorful plant diversity.
