Aquidneck Land Trust (“ALT”) and Aquidneck Community Table (“ACT”) announce a talk by American Book Award-winning author Patricia Klindienst on Wednesday, April 11, 2018.

The free event will take place at 7:00 pm in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall at Salve Regina University and is titled, “Food and Culture in Our Gardens.” Klindienst has written extensively about the immigrant experience and will discuss stories from her book, “The Earth Knows My Name,” which details the experiences of fifteen Americans who transmit their cultural heritage through their gardens.

“We are very pleased to present Ms. Klindienst to our Aquidneck Island audience for this special evening,” said Bevan Linsley, Executive Director of ACT. “She is a wonderful speaker and will address issues surrounding the importance of local food and local farming.”  Tickets for the free event are available on the Aquidneck Community Table website: https://aquidneckcommunitytable.org/. The event is underwritten by a grant from the 1772 Foundation.
