Book Lovers Ball

New York Times columnist MARGARET RENKL and her debut book!

Meet Margaret and other Milkweed authors at our annual celebration of writers, books, and readers! The Book Lovers Ball features a seated dinner, live auction, storytelling from authors, and more! Joining us from Nashville, Margaret Renkl writes a popular weekly column for the New York Times, all about “flora, fauna, politics, and culture in the American South.” Her debut book, Late Migrations, is about growing up in the South, love and loss, and the splendor of the natural world.
