Wave Hill House

Register for this event

Discover New York’s green underbelly with Marie Viljoen, whose beautiful first book, 66 Square Feet–A Delicious Life, draws the reader into a world of unfolding city seasons, seen from the perspective of an expert gardener and cook. Viljoen takes the audience behind the scenes on a photographic tour of the wilder parts of the Big Apple, and explores the appetite her research awakened in her for the true flavors of the Northeast. After the talk, join Laurel Rimmer, Wave Hill’s Assistant Director of Public Programs, for a short walk to see herbs and vegetables in the gardens at Wave Hill.  A book signing with Viljoen follows at 3PM in The Shop at Wave Hill.  

Free with admission to the grounds.
