Margaret Roach will be the guest speaker at the program at Kent Town Hall on Kent Green.

After 15 years at Martha Stewart Living and a decade each at Newsday and the New York Times, Ms. Roach now writes the nationally acclaimed blog at awaytogarden.com and is the author of the 2011 corporate-dropout memoir, "And I Shall Have Some Peace There."

Her next book, "The Backyard Parables," will be released in January.

A donation of $5 is suggested.
