Kenison and Roach: two-of-a-kind authors

MANCHESTER - Two authors, two friends, two lives, two books - and some common themes. Join Katrina Kenison and Margaret Roach for an event inspired by their much-anticipated new books, "Magical Journey: an Apprenticeship in Contentment," and "The Backyard Parables: a Meditation on Gardening, and Life," Saturday, Jan. 26, at 3 p.m. at the Northshire Bookstore. Katrina has spent 25 years nurturing a marriage, raising two sons to adulthood, tending to the myriad demands of home and family life. Margaret has spent precisely the same amount of time nurturing countless plants in the garden - a generous plot that has proven to be as worthy and complicated a life partner as any human mate. Now, despite different paths and charges, they find themselves in much the same spot, asking "What next?" - even as they learn to let go of what was, clearing space for new growth. Come connect with two authors, two friends, two lives, two books - and some common themes that we hope you will join in the discussion of as well.
