“He who has a garden and a library wants for nothing.” (Cicero)
Welcome to Fictions of Every Kind: Garden, where we invite you to ponder upon what seeds you can sow, where the weeds will come up no matter what you might do, and how you might plant a garden of rememberance.
Our invited speakers at this event will be:
