And in our second half-hour it’s our smart, feisty, fabulous, Four Broads Talking™ panel with Suzanna Andrews, Lisa Schiffren, Sheila Weller and our host Halli Casser-Jayne taking their look at the state of the race of Election 2016.
The author of EMILY DICKINSON’S GARDENS and BEATRIX POTTER’S GARDENING LIFE, Marta McDowell lives, gardens, and writes in Chatham, New Jersey. She lectures on gardening topics and teaches landscape history and horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden, where she studied landscape design.
