Join author Richard Louv and co-hosts Laura Turner Seydel and Steve Nygren for the launch of Louv's new book Our Wild Calling.
Tickets are required. Paid tickets guarantee a seat and a copy of the book. Free tickets may be standing room only. Complimentary refreshments (beer, wine, tea, water) will be provided. Tickets are available HERE.
Over a decade ago, Richard Louv’s Last Child in the Woods identified the growing generational gap between children and the natural world. That book introduced the term “nature-deficit disorder,” which has entered the language and helped launch an international movement to connect children, their families and communities to nature.
Now, after four years of research, Louv defines the future of human-animal coexistence. Our Wild Calling explores the powerful and mysterious bond between humans and other animals, how it can transform our lives — and how it can save theirs. He makes the case that deepening our connection with other animals, both wild and domestic, can improve our mental, physical and spiritual lives; serve as an antidote to the growing epidemic of human loneliness; and is essential to the preservation of life on Earth.

Please join Hills & Hamlets Bookshop as we welcome author Amber Shehan (from the popular website & blog "Pixie's Pocket") as she guides you through the steps it takes to start a small batch of mead or cider, how to know when it is ready to bottle, and the basics of the bottling process. This demonstration is great for anyone interested in learning to brew mead, from beginners to advanced. This is a ticketed event, and each participant will receive one copy of Amber's new book Artisinal Small Batch Brewing, a detailed brewing demonstration, and a tasting of the elderberry rosehip wine or maple cider recipes from the book. Tickets are available HERE
As we brew a one-gallon batch of mead and cider together, Amber will go in-depth into the main ingredients to make a simple brew. We'll also cover yeast nutrients, how to add fruit and herbs to the process, and other things that sound more complex than they are. Don't worry! It's easy. We'll have you brewing in no time!
You are invited to bring an edible flower or aromatic herb from your garden if you want to contribute to the mead or cider - not required, but it can make things fun!
Amber Shehan is the founder of PixiesPocket.com and the author of Artisanal Small-Batch Brewing (June 2019). Often called "Pixie," she can be found outdoors in the garden, rose bushes, and honeysuckle vines, foraging and making friends with the bees and spiders. Amber lives in Alexander, NC with her husband and daughter, a cat, a dog, and a mess o'chickens. https://www.pixiespocket.com

About the book:
Seeking Eden promotes an awareness of, and appreciation for, Georgia’s rich garden heritage. Updated and expanded here are the stories of nearly thirty designed landscapes first identified in the early twentieth-century publication Garden History of Georgia, 1733–1933. Seeking Eden records each garden’s evolution and history as well as each garden’s current early twenty-first-century appearance, as beautifully documented in photographs. Dating from the mid-eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries, these publicly and privately owned gardens include nineteenth-century parterres, Colonial Revival gardens, Country Place–era landscapes, rock gardens, historic town squares, college campuses, and an urban conservation garden.
Seeking Eden explores the significant impact of the women who envisioned and nurtured many of these special places; the role of professional designers, including J. Neel Reid, Philip Trammel Shutze, William C. Pauley, Robert B. Cridland, the Olmsted Brothers, Hubert Bond Owens, and Clermont Lee; and the influence of the garden club movement in Georgia in the early twentieth century.
About the authors:
Staci L. Catron is the director of the Cherokee Garden Library, Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center, and a past president of the Southern Garden History Society.
Mary Ann Eaddy retired from the Historic Preservation Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources where she worked first as manager of the technical services unit and then as special assistant to the director. She also taught a graduate course in preservation planning in the Heritage Preservation Program at Georgia State University.
