A Book Is Born!

Old-Manhattan-Has-Some-FarmsI 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.

    I’d love to have an autographed copy for Connor and Annabel. I’ll buy your book in August. It looks like a great story on a timely and important theme. Last year, I managed to grow one, 1, bell pepper. It was delicious, but my family would have starved to death had they counted on eating my produce!

      We once grew a watermelon the size of a walnut — a plant not well-suited to container gardens.
