I just received an advance copy of my new book, Old Manhattan Has Some Farms. It doesn’t matter how many PDFs or galley copies I’ve already seen; a book only becomes real to me when I hold it in my hands. That may pose a problem as society moves more towards ebooks, but for now, I can still enjoy the genuine article.
Old Manhattan Has Some Farms highlights how communities across North America can add locally grown foods to the menu. Each verse is set in a different city—Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta—and covers topics that range from beekeeping to hydroponics to container gardens. Anyone can grow good food, E-I-E-I-Grow!
Charlesbridge Publishing will release Old Manhattan this summer on August 5.
