After the successful release in summer 2014 of their photo-history Bay View: Images of America [Arcadia], author Mary Agria and husband John, a professional photographer, are on the road again in 2015 to promote her new novel, From the Tender Stem. Third in the Life in the Garden series, Tender Stem continues the saga of garden writer Eve Brennerman, her friends, neighbors and fellow gardeners in the tiny Northern Michigan town of Xenaphon. Program organizers for book and garden clubs, church groups, senior centers, libraries and other venues are encouraged to contact the Agrias to schedule events in their communities. The tour began in April in the Tempe, AZ area and will move cross-country, including fan club visits in the Upper Midwest during the summer months. It’s not too late to book an author chat or signing. Contact the author via her email firstname.lastname@example.org —Phone and Skype chats are also a fun way to bring the author to your next book club.
