Image For McDowell - Emily Dickinson's Gardening Life

McDowell - Emily Dickinson's Gardening Life

Item Description


Emily Dickinson was a keen observer of the natural world, but less well known is the fact that she was also an avid gardener—sending fresh bouquets to friends, including pressed flowers in her letters, and studying botany at Amherst Academy and Mount Holyoke. At her family home, she tended both a small glass conservatory and a flower garden.

In Emily Dickinson’s Gardening Life, award-winning author Marta McDowell explores Dickinson’s deep passion for plants and how it inspired and informed her writing. Tracing a year in the garden, the book reveals details few know about Dickinson and adds to our collective understanding of who she was as a person. By weaving together Dickinson’s poems, excerpts from letters, contemporary and historical photography, and botanical art, McDowell offers an enchanting new perspective on one of America’s most celebrated but enigmatic literary figures.

Roman - Nothing Fancy: Unfussy Food for Having People Over

Item Description


Just as Martha Stewart introduced a generation to entertaining nearly forty years ago, so now Alison Roman reinvents the dinner party as a relaxed gathering for our current culture where dining out is increasingly expensive and everyone is craving down time connecting with friends. In Nothing Fancy, Alison brings her signature laid-back, approachable style and visually stunning recipes that are high on wow factors and low on effort to dishes designed to be enjoyed with others, whether for an impromptu Tuesday dinner with a neighbor or a Saturday-night hang with the gang. From a special plate of lamb chops “for the table” to a who-doesn’t-love-a-baked-potato bar to Overnight Foccacia Tonight, each of these 150 recipes is brand new and signature Alison. Here, too, are plenty of Alison-isms, such as forget wine pairings and drink what you like, don’t stress about parsley stems, and yes, you can ask the guests to help with the dishes.
