Kalamazoo Area Chapter of Wild Ones and the Kalamazoo Nature Center co-sponsor
A RECEPTION TO CELEBRATE PUBLICATION OF USING NATIVE PLANTS TO RESTORE COMMUNITY IN SOUTHWEST MICHIGAN AND BEYOND, by NANCY AND TOM SMALL
Kalamazoo Nature Center, Glen Vista Room
There will be lots of refreshments (including fizzy but non-alcoholic beverage). Around 2 or 2:15, there will be remarks by Tom and by others involved in producing the book. Beginning at 3, there will be book signing, by Tom, by illustrators and the designer. Copies of the book will be available for a suggested voluntary donation of $25. Free copies will be available to all current members of the Kalamazoo Area Chapter of Wild Ones (voluntary donations, however, are welcome).
The book includes much of the information and observations about plants, plant communities, and natural landscaping that Nancy gathered over the years, together with essays and articles that Nancy and Tom wrote together or separately for many local, regional, and international publications. Tom has edited, rewritten, and completed Nancy’s work, in fulfillment of his promise to Nancy during the last months of her life. He enlisted the aid of outstanding local and regional artists and scientific illustrators and a professional book designer. The book includes 175 illustrations, most of them commissioned specially for this book.
All proceeds and donations will go to the NANCY SMALL MEMORIAL FUND and to the general fund of Kalamazoo Area Wild Ones, for programs and projects in environmental education.
ALL WHO WISH TO CELEBRATE THE PUBLICATION OF NANCY’S BOOK ARE INVITED.
Following the Nov. 13 celebration, copies of the book will be available for sale ($25) from nature centers and selected local bookstores and shops. See the new Kalamazoo Area web site for details: www.kalamazoowildones.org.
