Meet the (garden) Authors

Event brings garden authors from around the country to Buffalo

On Friday, August 4, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, 25 authors will come together to share their garden books. The authors will be on hand to talk about their books, and answer the questions posed by curious green thumbs. There will also be book signing opportunities at the affair.

Confirmed authors include: Allan Armitage, Kylee Baumle, Susan Betz, Jan Bills, Karen Bussolini, Joan Calder, Kate Copsey, Sally Cunningham, Katie Elzer-Peters, C.L. Fornari, Bill Johnson, Mary-Kate Mackey, Carol J. Michel, Thomas Mickey, Denise Schreiber, Kathleen Guest Shadrack, Michael Shadrack, Jessica Walliser, Teresa Watkins, Marianne Willburn, Barbara Wise, Ellen Zachos, and Maria Zampini.

The ‘Meet the (garden) Authors’ event coincides with a visit from over 300 garden authors, journalists, columnists, photographers, and bloggers, all of whom are considered “horticulture all-stars”. The group is coming together as part of the The Association of Garden Communicators (GWA) Annual Conference (August 4-7). Apparently, this is the first time that an event of this magnitude has ever come together, pertaining to the word of gardening.

‘Meet the (garden) Authors’ is free and open to the public. There is no need to RSVP. Local Buffalo bookstore Talking Leaves Books will be on hand, working alongside the authors.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
