AX Reading Series ~ Lee Whitney
We are pleased to present a reading from Lee Whitney‘s new book on Saturday, December 7, 2:00 p.m.
Lee is well known in the Sussex area for the column he published in the Kings County Record for more than 30 years, titled “A Letter From Home,” appearing under the pen name, “Jacob Erdman.”
A selection of these columns has now been published in a book titled Knowing By Heart: A Tribute to a Kennebecasis Valley Homestead Farm, illustrated by Alice Whitney and Lee and Alice’s grandson, Stefan Westner.
Lee Whitney writes about the patterns of the passing seasons on the farm, about the rigours of winter and the flowering of new life each spring. He has been a constant observer of the movement of stars, constellations, and planets in the night sky and has kept a detailed weather journal for many decades. His wide-ranging interests are all reflected in his new book.
Knowing By Heart, published by Chapel Street Editions, has been a family project, and members of the Whitney family will join the author for a presentation on the book and in reading selections from it.
This is a FREE event, and all are welcome.
