While we may have put our gardens to rest, Boston’s parks and green spaces are getting festive with lights, trees, skating ponds and beautiful early winter landscapes. This is a great time of year to discover hidden gems throughout the city and to rediscover those famed parks that take on a completely different look during the holiday season!

The perfect companion for all that exploring also happens to be the perfect gift for the nature-loving friends and family members on your list: Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces. But if you’re looking to make your present even more special, why not get your hands on a copy signed by the author? Thankfully, you’ll have two opportunities this week to make it happen!

Author Meg Muckenhoupt will participate in the Massachusetts Horticultural Society‘s Author Fest as part of the organization’s fourth annual Festival of Trees. She’ll discuss her book and be available to sign copies at the event, which takes place at the Gardens at Elm Bank in Wellesley on Thursday, November 29th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

On Friday, November 30, Meg will be a featured speaker at Cary Library’s Holiday Festival Night, which is free and open to the public. The event will run from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., and Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces will be available for purchase.

Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces is a stunning guide full of information about the city’s most revered historic parks, as well as newer spaces, including healing gardens and hidden pocket parks. If you’re unable to attend either event, get your copy online through our website, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or at your favorite local bookstore. If they don’t have it in stock, just ask! They’ll be happy to order it for you.
