Union Park Press’ own Meg Muckenhoupt, who authored Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces, is no stranger to giving thought-provoking, informative talks. We’re thrilled to announce that she will put her talents to good use at the Old South Meeting House at a talk hosted by the Boston Preservation Alliance on Wednesday, February 8th at 5:30 p.m. as part of their Meet the Author lecture series.

Come hear Meg’s views on the roles played by public spaces throughout Boston’s historic and contemporary landscape, from the suburban wilderness and urban wilds to the Emerald Necklace and newly created Big Dig parks.

The people at Old South Meeting Hall place a great deal of importance on educational lectures such as Meg’s, and it’s only fitting that the Boston Preservation Alliance should host the event. After all, the purpose of the nonprofit organization is to protect and improve the quality of Boston’s historic buildings, landscapes and communities through advocacy and education.

The event is free for members of OSMH and BPA, and $10 for non-members- the Boston Preservation Alliance simply asks that you pre-register here.  Don’t forget to bring your copy of Boston’s Gardens & Green Spaces for Meg to sign! If you don’t already own it, pick it up at the event—a UPP staff member will be there selling copies.

Can’t make Meg’s event? Union Park Press author Christopher Klein will take part in the series as well on Wednesday, March 28th at 5:30 p.m. He will share the “stranger than fiction” history of the 34 Boston Harbor Islands, which he wrote about in his book, Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands.
