Colorado Matters invites you to read with us and then meet the author. "Turn The Page with Colorado Matters" is June 29 at 7 p.m. at Denver Botanic Gardens.

"We should all take some time to plant life in the soil. Even when such planting isn't easy," writes Camille T. Dungy in her new book, "Soil: The Story of a Black Mother's Garden." Dungy, an English professor at Colorado State University, shares poetry and prose about her life (in & out of the garden), and about racial justice. "Whether a plot in a yard or pots in a window, every politically engaged person should have a garden."

Pick up a copy of “Soil” and join Colorado Matters at Denver Botanic Gardens on the evening of June 29 to meet the author and ask her your questions.

This event is in partnership with Denver Botanic Gardens and Rocky Mountain Land Library.
