The Larkin Square Author Series is pleased to welcome Barbara Ballinger to Buffalo and the Larkin Square Author Series for a free talk and book signing on her new book The Garden Bible: designing your perfect outdoor space (Images Publishing, 2016).  She will be speaking in Larkin Square on Monday, June 20th from 5:30pm – 6:30 pm.

Barbara Ballinger has enjoyed an extensive journalism career, starting out writing about houses, gardens, and architecture for House & Garden’s special publications.  She covered such topics as the antiques collections at the White House and State Department, interviewed subjects such as Tipper Gore, Danny Meyer, Roslynn Carter, and Martha Stewart, and appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show as an expert about how to avoid remodeling disasters. Barbara writes a regular blog with landscape designer Michael Glassman, www.thebareroot, who is her co-author for newly published book. Barbara is also co- author of the The Kitchen Bible: designing your perfect culinary space (Images Publishing, 2015)

The Gardens in Larkin Square have been newly landscaped with a wide variety of perennials, we think this is the perfect backdrop for a talk about gardens and gardening. Guests will learn a few tips to take home to help transform their own outdoor space.

Beer, wine and food served at The Filling Station before and during the event. Books for sale at the event courtesy of Talking Leaves. Larkin Square Author Talks are presented by First Niagara and sponsored by Independent Health.
